This is what grocery stores used to look like in Toronto
Photos of old grocery stores in Toronto make it quite plain how much more sanitized supermarkets have become.
While this tendency might not appear quite as stark it does when looking at old photos of the St. Lawrence Market, it's still intriguing to note the amount of butchering that went on in-house.
Also interesting to track is the sheer growth in size of these outfits. Loblaws and Sobeys (formerly Dominion and A & P), for instance, had quite humble beginnings as neighborhood grocery stores before expanding to cover the city with supercentres.
