No Postmark– Around 1920s
The cityscape of Toronto, with its many tall buildings adorned with fine architectural detail and its bustling street-level activity, is most akin to what Americans encounter in the busy cities of New York and Chicago. These early 20th century postcards highlight the magnitude of Toronto even then. The people and vintage vehicles in these tinted images add interest and help define scale.

Love your eclectic and interesting mix of images of Canada. Enhances my determination to visit!
These are amazing! I’m with Patrick (above): thanks for sharing. I always find hand-coloured photos so warm & engaging.
I found these interesting. This is the Toronto of my grandparents and I myself worked at King and Yonge in the early ’70s.
Being a Torontonian, I really found these interesting! Thanks for sharing them.
These are very cool, Toronto is on my bucket list!
These are fantastic pictures, Brett. Growing up just one hour west of Toronto, I am very familiar with the city and love its energy. Thank you as always! cher xo
Thanks, Cher. Of course, you now have lots of Chicago energy!
Well this is very true, Brett! Cher xo

Family lived here at this time.
It reminds me of the old postcards my mom saved in a scrapbook from the 30’s 40/s and 50’s. It give you such a good feel about the era. 🙂
A scrapbook of old postcards sounds very cool!
I just wrote a post about my mom’s 1941 jaunt to the Grand Canyon. It has a few pictures of the trip, pamphlet and post cards. 🙂
Who knew you had to have a Grand Canyon driver’s license?
That’s a little crazy!

Oh my these are great!! I used to work near Old City Hall next to Nathan Philips Square in Toronto…such a lovely city now…I mean it was nice before but it is more alive and warm now.
Toronto is a wonderful walking city with much to see and do on so many of its many blocks.
Oh for sure!! I used to walk after work from St. Patrick subway to Christie subway taking different streets. Amazing bike paths especially by the lake too.
