A contrast between the sedate Toronto of the turn of the century and the
thriving, expanding metropolis of 1951. Aerial views give evidence of the
conversion of the old Toronto into the new--the city with towering
skyscrapers, teeming traffic arteries, vast industrial developments and
far-reaching residential areas housing over a million people. Toronto's
forward march of progress is also Canada's, as manifested in the building of
Canada's first subway, and in the excited bustle of the nation's greatest
trading centre--the Toronto Stock Exchange--where her vast resources are
translated into soaring financial figures.
