Also, the 'Checker' cab on the left in Diamond livery; that has to be the first image I've seen of this combination. These cars were plentiful in New York City up until 1990 or so. There was a spacious back seat area that sat up to five; two on fold down jump seats that folded up into the back of the front seat.
Well, it was *originally* Pickering Farms--though at what point did Loblaws take over, and how long did the former branding last? Judging from the mailboxes, the photo seems early 70s-ish--and that's pretty au courant sans-serif in the PF signage. (I don't really remember the place before it became a Ziggy's superstore later in the 70s.)
The until-recently-Cookbook-Store, yes.
First IBM building in the city is still there too, on Campbell Ave.
Excellent alignment to the old photo - congratulations, brewster!
Thanks Goldie. I like roaming around that part of town. By the way , I really enjoy all your posts. What camera and effect are you using on a lot of the photos you have been posting lately ? Like on this one -- http://i793.photobucket.com/albums/y...ps6f03d869.jpg
