    Toronto | CN Tower: Entry Pavilion, Plaza, Renos | ?m | ?s | CLC | IBI Group

    When I read the title I thought fencing in the swashbuckler "sword-play" sense, so maybe that's it!

    Historic photos from Toronto on this day

    Where are the flowers, balloons, and fireworks?!? I can't believe it, but we've been around the sun a complete time since I started this thread back in April 6th, 2010! Crazy.

    Toronto Dancing!

    That's great; some good Toronto locations indeed, including every Toronto parent's favourite location at the end there - the chicken coop at Riverdale Farm. Was it just me, or did it look like half of the dancing was in front of a green screen, though?

    Even a simple "Suggest improvements" text field on each archive photo would be useful... going the full wiki route is interesting, and then there are sites like this forum, or ones with comments, like http://cinematreasures.org that improve with the comments from 'the public'. I haven't enabled...

    Ha, I'm not really sure what to say, J.T., besides perhaps "QUITE!" (Or maybe QUIET!) I agree that the City of Toronto Archives estimate for the date of http://gencat.eloquent-systems.com/torontodetail.html?key=216544 is obviously early at 1920 seeing as the Gates weren't opened until 1927.

    A good point - amazing to see what bad shape they were already in only 11 years after they were built. March 26th: Just one photo today, of No. 336 Annette Street, Wm. Wilson residence, west of Laws Street in The Junction back in 1935:

    Miscellany Toronto Photographs: Then and Now

    Are we talking about the ROM or the AGO here? I find the new ROM crystal to be painfully crap, but was actually impressed with how well the AGO additions fit together, and how much of the old building survives as part of the new AGO. On that note, here's a...

    Historic photos from Toronto on this day

    Amazing, and I would agree! Not sure why the two dormer windows at the far end of the 1931 photo were fused together, but other than that things really seem to match. March 23rd We start in 1915 with a relatively new view for Toronto - Spadina Road - Dupont Street subway looking north to Casa...
