‘TORONTO IN ART’ – 170 PAINTINGS, DRAWINGS AND WATER COLOURS ABOUT OUR CITY

“Toronto in Art” was written by EDITH C. FIRTH in 1983 to mark the city’s 150th anniversary.  Without a doubt, it’s one of the finest collections of paintings, drawings and water colours about Toronto.  Copies may still be available from the publishers, Fitzhenry and Whiteside, or you might find one in a used bookshop.
