"The Big Step (Dieter Engel) 1958 Toronto"

 (via Dominion Modern's Facebook page)

"My late father, Dieter Engel, shot this film documenting his first apartment in Toronto after leaving Germany in 1958 and coming to Canada. This takes place on Jameson Avenue and Queen Street, in Parkdale, Toronto. The car he’s driving is a BMW Isetta. It was shot on 8mm film. For the most part he shot it entirely on his own with help from his great friend Charlie Stiehl."

-Hans Engel
