Obscure Downsview (North York, Toronto, Ontario) Photos from the 1950s

Here are some pictures that didn't really fit into my other Downsview page, but I didn't want to throw away.


1954/1955 Street Views by James Victor Salmon, (Canadian, 1911-1958)

These large black and white pictures here are taken from the Toronto Public Library Archives. Visit them at .. http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/


Wilson Ave., looking e. from Keele St. -- 1955.


This one is interesting. He is on top of the 401 bridge looking north up Dufferin. 1955. Look how undeveloped everything was. The armoury is still in the future.


Now looking south down Dufferin.
