The “Nabes” were an important part of North American culture, a phenomena which peaked in the 1940′s, fell into decline in the late 1950′s mainly with the introduction of television, and became virtually extinct by the 1970′s.  Every neighborhood in Toronto and almost every major city throughout North America had a “Nabe” which became the center for entertainment, enjoyment, cinema. People organized their entertainment lives to attend their “Nabe” on a weekly basis – to watch movies, to see the newsreel, to meet friends, even to collect the “gifts” which were common as a premium give-away.
John Sebert, the renowned photographer, has now researched these landmark sites in Toronto’s archives. He has tracked down original photographs of the “Nabes” in their heyday and taken photos of the way they are today. Numerous well-known personalities have contributed texts which document their own ‘love affairs’ with their local “Nabes.” This book is an important visual record of a city, its transformation, its evolution and its cultural record.
