Anyone recognize this intersection?


Some where in Ontario circa 1967/68...smile.

If it is Toronto it has to be outa city limits cause the Sunoco is 24 hours and all city stations were closed by 7pm circa 1968. Ontario plates blue over white is even year, could be as early as December 1967 as plates went on sale in December for next year. 1968 Chev in background.
I'm thinkin four lane Eglinton west with a tire shop and a car wash.

Looks like a 67 Biscayne in front of the Chevelle.

Not a lot of clues there BJ. It's a T intersection so its giving me a Vaughan Road or Rogers Road vibe north of St. Clair, so yes I agree west end.

Interesting that the SS396 looks to have a driver, the Biscayne looks to be unoccupied and the car in front of it looks to have a driver?

I bet you're right. I looked at that black through the windshield but couldn't figure out what it was!

Besides the '67 Chevelle SS396 I see a '67 Biscayne, '61 Bel Air, Morris Oxford, '66 Plymouth, '67 Jeepster, '68 Caprice or Impala Custom, '68 Chrysler Newport & a '57 Chevy. That wagon ahead of the '67 Biscayne has me stumped. It is a GM but the details haven't been looked at yet.
The Sunoco in the picture offers retreading & vulcanizing. It shows how parsimonious Canadians were, retreading used tires. Could you imagine anyone today running them? Many people back then were children of the depression.

 Five letters below the window crank look like D O D G E.....no

The retreading is offered by the Goodyear store

.Retreading is big business for highway trucks.

Next time at a stoplight scan the tread area. It is likely a recap and are used on the rear trailers more  often. You need an ear tuned on the highway to hear the tread separation that goes off with a big bang

 I think we have a winner at I.D.ing the burgundy wagon. Is that a Bob Bannerman dealer sticker on the tailgate? It would make sense.

Rambers were very popular in Canada in the 1960s.
