Pearson was developed on farmland originally occupied by the community of Elmbank, south of Malton, in 1937.

Issued around 1945, this postcard is of the Malton Airport. In 1960, it was renamed the Toronto International Airport, and renamed after Lester B. Pearson in 1984.

Brampton Guardian editorial cartoonist Pete Garvey wasn't fond of airport taxi drivers, as of 1978. The cartoon was captioned "So I'll drive you to the washroom, OK?"

This photo by Steve Robson captures not only the airport in action, but the women's hairstyles of 1985.
