From link.
Common between 1950 and 2010 (aside from the streets themselves):
  • Esso
  • The building with the McDonald's
  • St. Hilda's Church (the buildings are different, but same location)
  • Apartment building on 785 Vaughan Road
  • The shape of the street signs (design and material are different)

Common between 1950 and 2025, but not 2010:
  • Streetcar/LRT service (above ground in 1950, underground in 2025)

Shown in 1950, but missing in 2010 and 2020, a police officer actually WALKING!!! Shocking!

It is such a wasted opportunity for 90B Vaughan to make a stop at Fairbank station with a small bus-only roadway linking the dead end of Vaughan Road with Eglinton Avenue.
The current plans are for the 90 VAUGHAN bus to use the OAKWOOD Station as its northern terminal. Subject to change, of course.
