Creating Toronto

Coloured illustration of King St East from the vantage point of looking east from Leader Lane. Buildings line either side of the road, pedestrians are walking along the side walk and on the road there are several horse-drawn carriages. In the background, the spire of St James Cathedral and Lake Ontario is visible.

Join us on walks through the history of Toronto as we explore the hidden gems of the St. Lawrence Neighbourhood, once the old Town of York, and connect today’s bustling city with remnants from the past.
