Aerial View of Don Mills Road, Circa 1960-Something

Two things jump out at me here: the lack of trees around the houses and apartment blocks, and the white flying saucer thingamabob where the Beer Store now stands on the Donway West. The DM of today is a much greener, less sprawl-y looking place! Many of the streets today (such as Waxwing Place) have close to a full tree canopy above them. However, the visibility of the streets and buildings in this old postcard allows me to quote my favourite sacreligious joke…  “Hey, I can see my house from here!”
