A Vintage Look at Hillcrest Village

Our neighbourhood is in a transitional period, as many of you know. If you’ve been to Bathurst and St. Clair and travelled west, you would have seen new developments, shops, boutiques and restaurants popping up at almost every storefront. It’s an exciting time but the area has also come a long way! As Toronto has developed (very rapidly we might add), Hillcrest Village changed right along with it and we have the photos to prove it! Check out these vintage photos taken around the future home of The Nest.

This one you might recognize! It’s St. Clair Ave. W looking east from Bathurst St. in 1953. This corner still looks very similar!

We love watching the evolution of our city and we can’t wait to be a future staple in Hillcrest Village photos for years to come!
