    I want that ladies polka dotty dress, the one with the parasol/umbrella.
    in that other thread they had posted a pic of like a phone book type thing. I forget what it was called, but it was the book of the elite social class, and their address', the summer house address' and "the days that they accepted callers on". i thought that was so cute.
    "Im sorry I cant see you today, I only accept callers on the 1st and 3rd friday of the month!"
    everything is so nice and grassy and tree-y in these pics.
    did you guys see the pic of santa claus in the street parade .... arriving on a ....FISH .... that was really funny and totally weird.

    you see a lot of buildings around Toronto that have lost their 'caps' - usually due to a fire at some point.

    These photos are great. This might be a silly question but how would one go about getting a high quality (8 by 10) printed copy of these photos? Contacting Toronto Archives directly I suppose?

    they should go back to having basic manners and shit taught in classes and the mothers/fathers classes for how to look after a baby and the home - for all the knocked up teenagers we get now.
