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.
