The TORONTO Star, Canada’s largest circulation daily newspaper, is donating one million vintage news photographs to the Toronto Public Library. This invaluable collection spans the years 1900 to 1999, and will be made available to students, researchers and ordinary citizens.
Chief Librarian JANE PYPER: “This photo archive is believed to be the only complete archive of Canadian news photographs spanning the entire 20th century. We are proud that we can now make this freely available at the library.”
The TORONTO Public Library is the country’s largest library system. Its extensive collection includes historical manuscripts, photographs, works of art, a children’s book collection and a science fiction collection.
