Fairbank/Then and Now

The outskirts of Fairbank in 1911. Harvie Ave on the left and Nairn on the right.
Taken from the crest of Hatherley Road.
An approximate current view.
This little house appears to be the same as the one circled in the first photo.
The chimney is the clue.

The Fairbank Fire Hall at Vaughan at Greyton Cres.
Now a little parkette.

Loblaws at Eglinton and Laird

The S/W corner in the mid 1950's.

A similar current view.
