On March 6th, 2014 the City of Toronto celebrates the 180th anniversary of its incorporation. Why not take a peek at how our city looked in its infancy.
Here are a few images from the Canadian Historical Picture Collection in the Marilyn & Charles Baillie Special Collections Centre at the Toronto Reference Library.
The original watercolour by John George Howard (1803-1890) hung in the City Hall, Toronto.
Maps of early Toronto have been digitized and can be viewed online or in person at the newly opened Marilyn & Charles Baillie Special Collections Centre on the 5th floor of the Toronto Reference Library.
