13 Vintage Photos Of Toronto That Will Take You Back In Time
Did you know that the CN Tower wasn't part of the Toronto Skyline until 1973?
Toronto has changed a lot overtime. It has become the definition of a "concrete jungle" thanks to the rapid building of what seems to be a million sky scrapers. So what did Toronto used to look like?
Most of us have no idea what the skyline was before our city was dubbed "the six". Well, to give you an idea...Uncle Tetsu's was not in existence, nor was The Rogers Centre or Gracie's. For some of these pics, the CN Tower wasn't even built yet! Here's a look at what Toronto looked like between the 1950s and 1990s:

1952 // King St. East
1957 // Chaplin Cres.
1958 // Chelwood Rd.
