Deja Views: Woodbine and Cassels

This grand house sits at the northeast corner of Woodbine and Cassels Avenues. The archival photograph was taken in the fall of 1922—or, you could say, 95 years before bicycle lanes were installed. Do you have an old photograph you’d like to share? Please email me at gdvandyke61@gmail.com.

Deja Views: Wheeler and Juniper Avenues

This interesting – and muddy – view of the intersection at Wheeler and Juniper Avenues show just how rugged the roads were back in 1924. I don’t know how a car could ever get up to Kingston Road in the rain or snow. Do you have a photograph you’d like to share? Please email me […]

Deja Views: Main and Danforth

This image of the Main Street and Danforth Avenue intersection was taken in 1965. The view is northeast and behind the brown brick building, centre frame, construction of what is now the Main Street TTC station wasn’t due to begin for a couple of years. Do you have a photo you’d like to share? Please […]

Deja Views for Sept. 19, 2017

This view is looking west on Kingston Road, a little past Main Street by Glen Stewart Crescent. The photo was taken by an unknown photographer some time in the ‘70s. Could this person have perceived the future condos on this corridor? Do you have an old photograph you’d like to share? Please contact me at […]

Deja Views for Sept. 5, 2017

Did you know that the Beach was used as a backdrop in the classic movie ‘The Black Stallion’? In this scene, the stallion escapes from a barn and runs through the neighbourhood – Kenilworth Avenue to be more precise. The critically-acclaimed movie was released in 1979, so my guess would be that this scene was […]

Thanks, Norton, for sharing your image. Do you have a photograph of the Beach you’d like to share? Please email […]

Witness a semi-detached house come undone – no pun intended. The view is on Pine Avenue between Willow and Beech Avenues. Do you have an old photograph you’d like to share with our readers? Please contact me at gdvandyke61@gmail.com.

Deja Views for June 27, 2017

This tower shot of the Donald D. Summerville Outdoor Olympic Pool was taken sometime in the ‘70s. Amazingly, the pool hasn’t changed much, but behind it, the Greenwood race track is a distant memory. It has been 24 years since a horse ran a lap. One thing I can’t understand in the image, is why […]

Deja Views for May 30

This beautiful Queen Anne Revival Style home is nestled on Balsam Avenue, just north of Queen Street East. There are maybe 40 years separating the two images. Are you as happy as I am to see this house has kept its original style, with a turret and huge front-wrapping veranda? Do you have an old […]
