Historic Photos of Summer in Mississauga

Although weather-wise it already feels like its here, today is the first day of Summer. In celebration, Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) has pulled a few fun summer archives shots from the Mississauga vaults to get us pumped and reminisce on summers past.

Lakeshore Road was often referred to as the Toronto-Hamilton Highway in its early years.

The Cooksville Fair, at the Toronto Township hall, around 1890.

The beach at Port Credit, around 1910.

Young men race motorcycles in Streetsville, 1948.

Willow Lake in Meadowvale Village was a popular fishing spot, around 1910.

Join PAMA tonight in downtown Brampton across from Gage Park (Thurs. June 21, 5 - 9 p.m.) for a FREE admission evening in celebration of Summer Solstice, Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day!

Explore and enjoy tours of the We are Here permanent exhibition at PAMA, which showcases Indigenous history and stories of people who live in Peel today.

Plus, don’t miss our monthly Drumming Circle with Peel Aboriginal Network at 7 - 8:30 p.m. PAMA has a great line-up of Summer fun for the entire family including Summer Camp (July 9 - 27) and Summer Staycation Activities on select Tuesdays and Thursdays in July and August (check website for exact dates) plus new exhibitions and so much more!
