Toronto Boom Town

For any Canadian it is hard not to think of Toronto Boom Town, but it isn’t (it’s barely 1/3 of the way through Canada), and as a former Montrealer, Toronto-the-Good is even more annoying (knowing that a lot of Toronto’s glitz came from Montreal).

This interesting NFB short shows Toronto in 1951 growing and changing, and this is before the boom of the 70’s, where the Financial Center of Canada moved from Montreal down the 401 (can you tell I am bitter?).

Enjoy this interesting view of a Metropolis before it became “The Big Smoke”.
