One of The World's Tallest Towers – 24 Rarely Seen Vintage Pictures of CN Tower in the 1970s

The CN Tower is a 553.33 m-high (1,815.4 ft) concrete communications and observation tower in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Built on the former Railway Lands, it was completed in 1976, becoming the world's tallest free-standing structure and world's tallest tower at the time. It is now the 3rd tallest tower in the world and remains the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere, a signature icon of Toronto's skyline, and a symbol of Canada.

Here are some lovely vintage photos of all about CN Tower shot by an unknown photographer in the 1970s.
