Recent posts on a blog about Toronto’s historic architectural gems

24 Apr

In the past few weeks, I have been placing posts on my blog about Toronto’s architectural gems. I have attempted to provide a detailed history of these buildings from the past, which remain important to the city today. The posts include both archival and modern photographs.

Below is a list of the posts and the links to view them.

I have spent much of my adult life researching the history of Toronto. I love the city. It has provided the background for my books, one of which, “The Villages Within”, was short-listed for the Toronto Heritage Awards. If interested in novels with a Toronto setting, descriptions of the books are available by following the link: https://tayloronhistory.wordpress.com/2012/03/22/toronto-author-publishes-seventh-novel/

They can be purchased in soft cover or electronic editions. All books are available at Chapters/Indigo and on Amazon.com. The electronic editions are less that $4. Follow the links:
