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 […]
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 […]
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 email@example.com.

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 […]
This easterly view is Kew Gardens, of course! These two panoramas were taken eight years apart, nearly to the day in spring. It turned out to be a great juxtaposition, as if I knew the park was going to be renovated – but I must confess, I was just lucky. Do you have a photo […]
What a difference a decade makes. These three images were shot in 2008, 2010 and 2017 on Wheeler Avenue, just a little north off Norway. There are a lot of opinions about the changing complexion of the Beach, but I’ll let my camera do the talking. P.S. While there are a lot of differences in […]
Major additions began to be made to what is now known as Malvern Collegiate Institute in 1922, around the time this archival photograph was taken. The photographer is unknown. In the mid-sixties, the main building was closed for two years as it was modernized and renovated, and the library wing in the front was added […]
