Historic Toronto photos from December 21

There are a number of great web sites that provide historic photos from around Toronto. As I was collecting them for an interactive historic map of the city I realized that it was also interesting to find photos that were taken around the current time of the year.

If you'd like to see photos from today, you can always load this page without parameters to see the last few days worth of photos.

You can also see all the historic photos for a given neighbourhood. A subset of the photos have also been arranged by subject.
