I hope you enjoyed the site, it was put up in the interest of sharing some of the nostalgia that usually just sits in basements.
Many of the photo's were taken by me, some are from other collections and are noted. I have made every effort to credit any of the photos I did not take. There are some obvious ones like the magazine pics, most of which should be noted
This site covers 1974-84 but focuses primarily on the 77-84 era ending when the WWF took over in mid 84. There is also a Nostalgia page devoted to the historic past in Toronto.
Always welcome contributions, to contribute scans please contact me
