Old Photos (Toronto Optimists, Seneca Optimists & Others)Here you will find photos of the Toronto Optimists, the Seneca Optimists and Our Roots (boy scout bands, Danforth Tech, Western Tech, etc). There are also photos of many other corps, mostly Canadian. In addition, there is a category for memorabilia and another section where we remember "Those Who Have Gone." The sections for the Toronto Optimists and the Seneca Optimists are organized by year. Also, whenever I have yearbooks, I post them as Acrobat (pdf) files under the appropriate year.

Our RootsOptimists began as a Scout band, evolved into Opti-Corps and, then, into Toronto Optimists. After merging with the Seneca Princemen in 1976, the corps became the Seneca Optimists. This section contains photos of the scout band, Danforth Crusaders and Opti-Corps.
