Book Description

May 15 2009

From Kingston Road right down to the water, the Beach is a Toronto oasis where the boardwalk stretches along the lake to create a calm, outdoor atmosphere unlike that of any other part of the city. This personal take on the neighborhood’s charms points to the streets and shops—busy with pedestrians, dogs, and strollers—and the fabulous summer scene, featuring picnickers, sunbathers, and outdoor sports enthusiasts from all over the world. Rounding out this delightful guidebook are lighthearted historical asides and photographs from the last four decades.

Format:Paperback
The local dimension of history is sometimes overlooked or relegated to supposed lesser importance.

But a book such as this pictorial history of The Beach area of eastern Toronto makes local history come alive.

This book includes much information on the Kingston Road approaches to Toronto and about life over the past century along the lakeshore, east of the city centre of Toronto.

The section about the historic Ashbridge Estate is particularly informative and containing detail not easily available from other published sources.

This book makes a welcome addition to anyone familiar with the east end of Toronto and an interest in local history.
