  1. That’s the “Carlton Car” (now known as the 506) heading south on Coxwell Avenue, about to turn west on “Lower Gerrard” (Gerrard Street East has a one-block break at Coxwell, continuing eastward one block to the north). People in the area refer to Upper Gerrard and Lower Gerrard. The Kresge Store, which featured a fabulous soda fountain and long snack bar set-up is now a Dollar Store. Just to the north of Kresges was a Loblaws store (obscured by the street car). That Loblaws store was considered a very large store by 1960s standards. It’s now a No Frills store in the same footprint and is one of their smallest stores. The hardware store is still there with a Home Hardware banner today.

  2. Appears to be around Gerrard and Parliament.
