There’s something about the summer that just makes you feel nostalgic. Perhaps it’s all the fresh, warm air, or maybe the fact that our minds relax enough this time of year to take an extra moment to think back on what was. We’re feeling a little nostalgic this week about one of our favourite neighbourhoods in the city – Yonge and Eglinton. We don’t have an attic with old photos and artifacts of this beloved area, but luckily the Toronto Archives provide plenty of pics to peruse from way back when.
If you know the area well, you’ll surely spot some changes. And if Yonge and Eg is new to you, we’re happy to help in your journey to getting to know the neighbourhood.
