Not a very good skyline shot of Vancouver, but I hope people will make an exception for this spectacular view from Grouse Mountain:

I believe that's taken from a restaurant/bar on the top floor of the Manulife building in Yorkville. I've always preferred this view to the one from the lake because you can see more of the city. Lots of new skyscrapers since that photo was taken though. Trump, Shangri-La, and AURA are conspicuously missing.

Can you pinpoint that building in Yorkville for me using this photo? I believe Yorkville is where I'll be staying.

Don't you worry, Quantum. When you come to visit I will show you the good spots like that! Leave it to me.

Monkey found a nice aerial shot of Toronto from 1940:

I thought about mentioning that to you, but didn't know whether you wanted to make your grand Toronto debut public.

Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver and Montreal. In that order.

Mississauga, Edmonton, Niagara Falls, North York, and Burnaby all tied up for the runner ups.
