Great aerial shots! Where did you take them from? From the CN Tower? I think they were taken from another skyscraper, right?. Thanks for sharing.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain.

Yeah, too bad you didn't have more time. Even so, some gems there.

I remember seeing ROCP I and II during construction and being very impressed with the size of towers going up all around Toronto. How things have changed. Now it's on another level!

Nice pics. These two images are pure Toronto vernacular: the first modern-day, the second late Victorian. It has always struck me as odd when people say Toronto does not look distinctive, because it so obviously does. And yet, "Toronto is a generic anywhere" is a myth that seems to have real traction.

I agree, Toronto's built form is very unique. Even in sections that look generic or "anywhere" there are distinctive clues in the cityscape that are a dead give away that it couldn't be anywhere but Toronto.

North American built form with streetcars tends to be the give-away for me.

Very atypical pictures of TO. Cool to see - and thanks for sharing!

As for the whole generic discussion, I could easily be persuaded that these skyline pictures came from Vancouver, and the Victorian neighbourhoods from some mid-sized city in Ohio or the northeast U.S. Everywhere looks like somewhere else if you're not intimately familiar with the signs you mentioned.

The first picture, for example, I'd probably guess was some random town in Asia. Someone else might be able to recognize vehicles and instantly know it's North America. Not me.
