Deja Views: The southwest corner of Coxwell and Queen in the 1970s

Photo above shows the southwest corner of Coxwell Avenue and Queen Street East in the 1970s. Inset photo shows the intersection as it now looks.


Being a youngster in the 1970s meant you had to have a Wheelie Bike!

Banana seats and sissy bars were the order of the day, as witnessed in this 1970s photograph of the intersection of Coxwell Avenue and Queen Street East. This view shows the southwest corner.

Do you have an old picture of yourself on a bike touring around the Beach? I’d love to see it.
