not sure of year.but for sure before 1977 .thats my 1970 blue duster and I got rid of it before 77.in 77 I had a Camaro.round tree park picnic area 1 facing finch or towards Albion mall.other pic is me with my father between 68 and 70.the 66 Buick wildcat in the parking lot is his car Burgundy color its probably exactly where my duster is parked in the other pic .if your wondering why im moping I was pissed cause I wanted to hang with my friends in stead of sitting in a park with mommy and daddy.remember the p f running shoes.other 2 pictures are the same day by the river and im still still pissed.

not much of a pic.1976 about January.i jumped out of the car to take a pic of my friend and gf .she ducked cause she was camera shy.we are on Kipling in the right lane at a red light and Albion rd heading towards rexdale blvd.later that night after we dropped my gf home we went to the mens room at the skyline hotel.im sure it was 10 cents for one draft beer.and you got a good buzz off the draft.and cause I was young I didn't get hang overs.remember the skyline before 75 that same friend and me saw Ricky nelson there.

Amazing photos, Dan. Would you happen to have any of the Finch-Albion Centre or photos inside the Albion Mall from back in the day?
I've been searching everywhere for more inside mall shots.

You know, the strip mall that used to have Food City, General Distributing, Colour Your World,. etc?
