11 More Vintage Streetscape Postcards of Toronto, Etobicoke, Hamilton & Oakville

As I noted in a previous blog post I am a big fan of both vintage postcards and streetscape photography. I am especially fond of seeing the two combined!

Here are eleven more examples of streetscape postcards of Toronto, Etobicoke, Hamilton and Oakville.

(Click on images to enlarge)

Downtown Toronto pre-Sheraton, Hilton & Eaton's Centre!

A view of the "Hotel Toronto" the Hilton


Another downtown view. From the back of the card:
"The City and central core can be seen almost growing before your eyes, as new structures constantly replace the old or fill the empty spaces. Toronto is a hive of activity and one of the fastest growing cities in North America"


Hart House

The Eaton Centre. From the back of the card:
"One of Canada's largest and most adventurous development projects is situated on 15 acres of land bounded by Yonge, Queen, Bay and Dundas streets in Toronto's downtown core. It offers excitement, variety, quality and convenience to an estimated  100,000 daily visitors"

The Roadway Inn & Seaway Hotel
From the back of the card:
"Over-looking the Toronto Parklands and Lake Ontario, about 10 minutes drive to downtown or Toronto International Airport - 300 spacious, air-conditioned rooms - colour TV - free parking - outdoor pool"

Hamilton City Hall

Downtown Hamilton at night.
Note the Woolworth's on the left!

With 16 Mile Creek, Dunn & Lakeshore Rd., Oakville Centennial Building and
Gairloch Gardens
