Reminds me. Sometime in the late 70s I strode into a bookstore on University and, for the life of me I don’t know why, I relieved the store of a coffee table book called “Lost Toronto.” Into my big leather portfolio it fell. I guess I was fascinated already by what had been so casually demolished to make way for the steam-roller of progress. Some 15 years later I returned to the same store and snuck the somewhat dog-eared book back in. I’m sure the store management had a field day wondering what that was all about. Good book, too. Merry Christmas, Lost Toronto!

I’ve based this site on that same book. Lost Toronto by William Dendy.
I have 2 copies, a hardback and a paperback. Still available. There’s a book dealer at the St. Lawrence Sunday Antique Market that deals with a lot of Toronto history books and he often has a copy.

Thank you, Greg, for all of the pleasure you have provided for me in visiting my own past, and the past Toronto of my father and grandfather. I always look with anticipation for your posts in my e-mail. Happy holidays.
