Toronto Harbour, 1950

I picked up a small hardcover book the other day, Ontario in your Car by John and Marjorie Mackenzie, published in 1950. It's more or less a tourist guide to the various areas of Ontario, mostly showing how sleepy this province actually was. The picture above is a fine example- this is the Dutch ship Prinz Willem IV in the Toronto Harbour. I'm not certain how you can avoid the Toronto skyline in a shot like this but from the picture, its hard to imagine any reason for disembarking in the provincial capital!
