In Looking back Seventy-five years to 1921, there is no doubt that public Transportation has played a major role in the development and maturing of Toronto and its metropolitan area. Indeed , despite the fiscal challenges facing it, the TTC today remains a transit agency with an enviable reputation. The TTC Story:The First Seventy-five Years, by Mike Filey, features over one hundred magnificent black and white images selected to illustrate the principal "transit" event in each year of the TTC's existence. The photographs have been selected from the Commission's vast archival collection by its knowledgeable archivist, Ted Wickson. Each event is fully described and put into its local, national, and worldwide historical context through the use of entertaining and informative text.
Mike Filey, popular Toronto historian, is a member of the Ontario Heritage Foundation and past member of the Toronto Historical Board. In addition to "The Way We Were," Mike's regular column in the Toronto Sunday Sun, he is the author of many books on Toronto, including The TTC Story, Discover and Explore Toronto's Waterfront, I Remember Sunnyside, and the Toronto Sketches series.
