Toronto has often been described as a “City of Neighbourhoods.” Some began as villages or towns while others were suburbs before joining the City. Through hundreds of images we will explore the architecture and history of approximately a dozen of our neighbourhoods. Who lived there and why? What form did their houses and businesses take? What remains today of the original settlements? Neighbourhood examples will include Yorkville, the Beach and the Junction. One class will be a walking tour.
