During the twentieth century Torontonians have gone from pitying Cabbagetowners to envying them, from watching Lionel Conacher at a sandlot to watching the Blue Jays at the SkyDome. This book chronicles the immense changes that Canadas largest cityMoreDuring the twentieth century Torontonians have gone from pitying Cabbagetowners to envying them, from watching Lionel Conacher at a sandlot to watching the Blue Jays at the SkyDome.

This book chronicles the immense changes that Canadas largest city has undergone in this frenetic period.In 1918 Toronto was a provincial city with a half-million inhabitants, overwhelmingly British, Protestant and Tory. Today the city is undeniably world-class, its three million inhabitants gathered from all over the polyglot globe.

Despite this metamorphosis, however, Torontos resilient social fabric endures. Urban planners consider Toronto the city that works- other Canadians know it works, sometimes perhaps too hard and too well.Toronto Since 1918 gathers the manifold strands of this great urban tapestry, bringing the city to life with an incisive, engaging text illustrated with more than 150 historical photographs.
