A NEW EXHIBIT AT THE CITY OF TORONTO ARCHIVES – “FROM STREETS TO PLAYGROUNDS”

A1606160-ArchivesExhibit Web Banner v2.inddIn the good old days, many TORONTO children had the run of the streets. An exhibition from the vast photography collection of our city’s archives captures the kids at work and play in a growing, dirty and dangerous city.  Photographers found them in laneways, backyards, behind houses, on construction sites, sitting on stoops and staircases.

The City of TORONTO Archives occupies an impressive building at 255 Spadina Road. While there you can see the stacks through a glass window – boxes and boxes of our city’s history, and over a million photographs.  Website – http://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/contentonly?vgnextoid=7cb4ba2ae8b1e310VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD
