Toronto Sketches 8 by Mike Filey
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Toronto Sun columnist Mike Filey is back with Toronto Sketches 8, the series that captures the people, politics, and architecture of Toronto's past with photographs and anecdotes that will change the way you see the city forever. The book brings us back to the time of Toronto's original horse-drawn streetcar, the construction of Maple Leaf Gardens, and other memories of Toronto, many of which show how history repeats itself, as in the gas price wars of the early 20th century or the debate in 1911 over building a bridge to Toronto island.
