This video will give some of our younger members an idea of what Boom-Time construction used to be like: Produced by Leslie McFarlane at the NFB in 1951.

Great video! Thanks for sharing traynor. Loved the aerial shots, the shots of the old slums, regent park under construction, King and Bay of the 50's - I basically loved the whole vid. Really cool overall

That was excellent, thanks. I'm also struck by the how similar the perceived treats to Toronto's prosperity - then and now.
