What's the Future Ever Done for Me?

Cloverdale Mall/Then and Now

When Cloverdale Mall (in Etobicoke) was built in the late 1950’s it was really a plaza, the inner courtyard was open. After the opening of Sherway Gardens in 1971 the popularity of Cloverdale began to decline until it was decided to revamp the plaza and enclose it.
Cloverdale was built on farmland that had originally been known as Eatonville,purchased by The Eaton family to provide milk and cream for their department stores.

There was a concrete sculpture/slide at the south end that provided hours of fun for the kids while our parents shopped. Who’s the girl in the mini skirt? If you click on this image
you’ll find an original Big Boy statue in the top left corner.
