Historicist: Ghosts of Christmases Past

Every Saturday at noon, Historicist looks back at the events, places, and characters—good and bad—that have shaped Toronto into the city we know today.


To celebrate the holiday season, we present a sampling of a century’s worth of Christmas advertisements, illustrations, pictures, and stories. Light up a Yule log (real or video), sit back and enjoy.

    I remember the gift wrapped buses and
    streetcars from the '50s and '60s.
    They didn't carry ads but rather public
    service announcements for the Salvation
    Army and other seasonal messages.
