Information on color photos below, thanks to Scott B.:
"This is the second Volkswagen Canada Headquarters, located on the Golden Mile. The building in the picture is now Centennial College - Ashtonbee Campus. The address is 75 Ashtonbee Road, at Warden Avenue, one block north of Eglinton Avenue East, in the borough of (and former city of) Scarborough (now Toronto). The reason Eglinton Avenue in that stretch (from Victoria Park Avenue until approximately Birchmount Avenue) was called the Golden Mile was due to various machinery factories, from weapons and ammo to auto parts manufactories, were set up for WWII purposes; later, it developed into various shopping plazas and dealerships and repair shops."
