Skyline Restaurant / Parkdale

The Skyline Restaurant in Parkdale is one of my favourite "Diners" in the city.
It has a great neon sign, the interior has lots of period details and it's kept spotless.
Highly recommended: cheeseburger and onion rings (the best in the city) or
open face roast beef sandwich (Mat's favourite).

Even the back room is nice...for a private party.

Dundas and Sorauren/ Then and Now

Dundas Street West looking west across to top of Sorauren Avenue in the
the 1930's. At this time the streetcar tracks had a dedicated side of the bridge as
seen on the left hand side of the photo.A similar view in 1969.
From the foot of the Dundas bridge looking west across the top of Sorauren in 1936.
A similar vantage point in 2010.
Have you noticed how many ads there are for Sweet Caporal Tobacco?
