Ever wonder what your city looked like 10, 20, maybe even 30 years ago? Well, we wondered the exact thing about our beautiful city of Toronto and came across a great community of vintage photos - Check them out after the jump!
Facebook community Vintage Toronto collects and shares the many vintage photos, most of which are film, of the city before it became the way it was today. From the opening day at the Skydome to Union Station to every street corner and intersection, there’s plenty to lay your eyes on. I’ve always loved looking at vintage photos as there’s always one thing constant: change! It’s so amazing to see what a difference a few (or many) years can make.
Check out the gallery below and be sure to follow them on Facebook for daily updates of vintage photos!

We lent Bastien some of our cameras for his trip to Kamtchatka with the Nixon Surf Challenge Team, and we're thrilled to finally showcase what he brought back from the great cold. Check out the photos and the exclusive interview after the jump.

From the simple Vivitar 110 camera he received from his grandmother, Brett Wolff already accumulated close to almost a hundred cameras and accessories in his analog arsenal.
