Product description

Review

What emerges is an intriguing, humorous and sometimes downright strange history of Toronto ... Fun to read, the book traces the witty history of a city born of conflicting traditions, ideals and personalities. Walking the streets of Toronto will never be the same again. (Annemarie Brissenden Toronto Annex Gleaner 2001-03-01)

Deserves a place on every Toronto history buff's bookshelf. (Steve Pitt Canadian Book Review Annual 2000-01-01)
