The above image was taken in 1967. We are looking westward on Queen Street East just by Victoria Park Avenue, with the entrance to the Neville Park Loop on the bottom left of the photo.
There used to be many gas stations in the Beach. Please notice the Shell station on the corner of Neville Park Boulevard and Queen Street East. If you can believe it, petrol was a measly seven cents a litre back then.
