What would you experience if you were to stand in one spot in downtown Toronto for the past 100 years? This video answers that question for you. Journey through Toronto's architectural history, seeing both past and current landmarks. Some areas look familiar even today, and some don't.
A simulated time-lapse created with elements from thousands of pictures, each scene starts with a historical photograph from the Toronto Archives. From black and white to colour, streets like Bathurst and Queen and the Waterfront are transformed from horse and buggy to cars and streetcars. This amazing short film shows familiar landmarks like St. Lawrence Market and Yonge Street showcasing its original form and buildings. The video previously won for the Best Community Film at the Cabbagetown Short Film Festival.
