He pulled up next to me and stopped, slid the window open and said "You can take my picture for $5000!"
Having my camera out already, I had already obliged him before he even finished speaking.

This is the streetcar that the guy in the first photo was driving. There were tracks under this overpass,
filled with lots of good .

Toronto seemed to be much more -friendly than here in . More polite drivers, ubiquitous ,
clear ordinances and tons of those iconic to lock-up to. Thank you for letting me borrow your superfast bike!

I love and in general, but after seeing them pop up again and again on
for almost ten years now, it was nice to finally see them in person. A special thanks to all you Torontonians
out there who have posted so many photos of your city over the years. I was actually quite surprised by how
many places I recognized from having spotted them here before!

Anyway, I'm already looking forward to visiting again. More photos to come...

Great set! I love taking the streetcar south from Broadview Station and then across King on Saturday mornings... en route to St. Lawrence market. I pick up my groceries and by the time I'm done the same driver has turned around at Dundas St. station and comes back across King going east.

next time you're in T.O. try a Mill St. Tankhouse Ale (Yum) instead of a Molson Canadian.

Any City, U.S.A.


America the beautiful As the city and its businesses accumulated wealth and maturity, merchants built commercial blocks for businesses along Main and its side streets. Catchy phrases and bold claims appeared in ads as did illustrations of goods, bold print, and more...
