Toronto artist Brian Donnelly is on a mission; a longtime Degrassi fan, he wants to identify as many shooting locations as possible of the franchise's second series, Degrassi Junior High. As Brian tracks down each location he documents it on a blog, Degrassi Panthers, posting contemporary shots alongside old screen grabs to see how the spots have changed over 25 years or so. Most are in the city's east end, from Leslieville to the Beaches, but there are also some as far afield as Etobicoke. There's a Facebook page and a Twitter feed, too, so you can stay up-to-date on Brian's Degrassi discoveries as he posts them.
