A witty, entertaining and accurate picture of ourselves over this 40 year period that will fascinate all those interested in photography, history, nostalgia, architecture, human behavior, Canadiana and Torontonia.

Over 150 photographs and commentaries of the times with vivid and startling impressions of how we worked, played, lived and survived in an era very different from own.  An era without many of the creature comforts we take for granted today!

But there was also a dark side to those good old days – poverty, wages, working conditions, crimes and homeless children.
