Old Toronto

This is pretty cool.

Sidewalk Labs, the sister company of Google that's partnering with Waterfront Toronto to build a "smart" neighbourhood of the future on the city's waterfront, has created an online tool that gives people a glimpse into the past.

It's a digital map that has incorporated more than 30,000 photos from the city's archives. People can pick a location and look at photos that are anywhere from 30 to 150 years old.

Saw this on the CBC news website, I could spend hours looking at old black and white Toronto photos.
I am old enough to remember farmers fields around Toronto, which wasn't all that long ago.

An amazing set of photos. My earliest memories of TO would be early 70's.
