Yonge Street in the 1970's

609 Yonge Street in 1970.

Church and Shuter/Then and Now

The Labour Temple Building on Church south of Shuter as seen in 1965 when it was for sale.
By 2010 the facade has been retained and condos built above and to the north.
As seen from the Church yard across the street in 1965.

More Danforth Used Car Lot Signs 1958

A great collection from the York Archives.

Eastern and Lewis/Then and Now

From the York Archives, a shot of Lewis Street looking north from eastern in the early 1950's.
Lewis ends at Queen where the Opera House is. The Opera House is an old vaudeville house and I'll post some shots of it later.

Yonge Street in the 1960's

I'm sure I've posted this before but still a great, iconic photo of Yonge Street in the mid 60's looking south towards Dundas at Edward. There's also a nice early Corvair (59-64) in the shot
travelling south and a lot of neon.
