This aerial photo of the former city of Gloucester shows how urban sprawl puts pressure on farm land.  In a little more than 50 years, the agricultural land which used to dominate the area around Blair Road and Ogilvie Road has been removed by suburban development with its highways, curvy roads and strip malls.

Actually, that picture was pretty much complete by the 1980s with the construction of Gloucester Centre, the office park and Canadian Tire. All of the housing in this picture was there by the end of the 1970s, with the possible exception of Gregory Court.
