RE: Random Vintage Photo thread-all makes welcome


952 Barrington Street in the early 1960s.  Old British American service station with shop truck next to the billboard.

It should be noted that these buildings and the ones in the photo I posted above no longer exist.  They were all torn down during the 'slum clearance' and the ill-fated Harbour Drive project of the 1960s...

Don't know if this has been linked here before, but I stumbled across a treasuretrove of photos of old Toronto.  It strikes me how many Pontiacs are in these photos - really shows how popular they were in Canada during the fifties and sixties.  Makes me wonder if any of the cars in the photos are still around, and do they belong to Canadian CP members?
