Toronto’s city landscape is ever changing. Before the snazzy cars, tall building, and narrow streets, Toronto’s cityscape still had distinct features of the Six. From the golden days of record labels, to the beginning of street cars, the views of our city has never disappointed.

Luckily, Toronto History has managed to combine many vintage snaps of the city we love, and here are some highlights.
