Evocative Images of Lost Toronto

all but one, goldie :)

on the west side of laird, the Durant office building still stands (it's in your aerial photo too)

see http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2007/ny/bgrd/backgroundfile-7275.pdf

p.s. gorgeous aerial, by the way... do you have any more?

Thanks for the correction, rudy.

Yes, great aerial, isn't it? But not mine - I found it online (the site name now long-forgotten).

Here are a couple of others.

This aerial dated 1928

And this one (1937) features the remaining aircraft hangers
