Vintage Toronto Ads: Master the Art of Pleasing Each Other

Sharing the good life at a 1970s condo on the western edge of Etobicoke.

After moving into the zigzagging towers of The Masters zipped into the Markland Wood neighbourhood, this couple spent more time together enjoying nightly swims, sipping fine wines despite the stares of the medieval citizens depicted on their wallpaper, practicing their golf swings, and spending quality time in the sauna. They also took advantage of the leisure facilities to further their individual interests: he spent hours in the darkroom developing photos of amateur models who succumbed to the charms of his red neck scarf, while she unwound in the pottery room by recreating in clay pleasant and disturbing visions from her dreams of what her lover was up to.

Based on recent ads, spending more time together at The Masters will set you back around $369,000 for a two-bedroom unit.
