Posted by on Nov 5, 2014 in Best of Leslieville, Blog

After the popularity of my last blog entry on the 1960’s landscape of the east side of Toronto, I decided to breakdown all the photos we have by decades so that we can “visit” this era digitally. My recommended soundtrack to this photo album would be Michael Jackson’s Thriller (Sorry, like batteries with your favourite 80’s toys – the soundtrack is not included here, but you could open up MJ in another window on youtube).

  I’m sure you have already prepared yourself for the imminent Zombie Apocalypse. Your basement or condo locker is filled with all the necessities:  cases of beans, bottles of water, Fruit Loops, energy drinks,  weapons, and of course Matt & Ben’s RE/MAX business cards (you might want to sell your home fast at the first sight of a Zombie).
