The Toronto Star is a Canadian broadsheet daily newspaper. It is Canadas highest-circulation newspaper on overall weekly circulation; although it is a close second to The Globe and Mail in daily circulation on weekdays and Saturdays, it overtakes the Globe in weekly circulation because it publishes a Sunday edition while the Globe does not.

    Heading towards The Stars birthday on Friday, were celebrating #Star125 with photos from the archive. Today, the start of the TTC subway line, death of Hitler, and more: - 1945: Torontonians, many of them hearing for the first time of Adolf Hitlers death, cheer as an effigy of the German dictator set up by a sailor at Yonge St. and Queen St. burns from a lamppost. - Sept. 17, 1949: At about 2:30 a.m., the S.S. Noronic, a luxury cruise ship tied up at Pier 9, near todays ferry docks, bursts into flames while on its last trip of the season. (Edwin Feeny / Toronto Star) - Sept. 8, 1949: Thousands gather at Yonge and Wellington Sts. to witness the groundbreaking of the Yonge Line Canadas First Subway. (John Walker / Toronto Star) - Oct. 30, 1954: Mrs. William Hooker stands in front of her decimated Island Rd. home, somehow remarkably smiling. Just a couple of weeks before, on Oct. 15, Hurricane Hazel ripped through the Toronto area, with winds reaching 124 kilometres an hour and more than 121.4 millimetres of rainfall recorded over the day. (Gordon W. Powley / Toronto Star) - Oct. 13, 1964: Former Metro chairman Frederick Gardiner is just a young man from the country trying to get along. Thats what the 69-year-old politician tells construction workers as he walks down Torontos $104-million superhighway that will be named after him. (Reg Innell / Toronto Star)

The reports werent confirmed until five days later, but Torontonians still cheered the apparent end of the war, between the British Empire, the South African Republic and the Orange Free State. - 1906: Selfie time! Star freelance photographer William James, who took photos during Torontos building boom in the 1920s, turns the camera on himself.

(William James / Toronto Star archive) - 1924: Torontonians flock to Sunnyside Beach in the citys west end to cool off. The bathing pavilion, built as a place for lake bathers to change, opened in 1922, and could accommodate about 8,000.

    Joseph Reid ran the marathon dressed as Gord Downie in tribute to the iconic Canadian musician during the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Trevor Hofbauer, who has never run more than 41 km before, finished as the top Canadian while Philemon Rono, broke the tape in first and recorded the fastest marathon ever run in Canada and fastest in North America. Leslie Sexton was the top Canadian woman. | Steve Russell / @steverussell / Toronto Star
