Toronto. What would we be without our rich history?

While many have been modified over time, Toronto’s historic buildings retain vital memories of our city’s past and the people who preceded us.

As the landscape continues to shift around them, its important to remember how these structures have helped shape and define our communities – as depicted HERE, in this snapshot taken in 1931 in front of The Fashion Building at 130 Spadina Avenue.
