Step Back in Time at PortsToronto’s Historical Photo Exhibit
Toronto’s downtown core and the Waterfront are home to businesses, residences, parks and some of the most significant development in North America today. However, the Waterfront wasn’t always a thriving neighbourhood. (In fact, just 100 years ago, much of the area was swamp land!)
The Making Connections to Toronto’s Waterfront – A Historical Retrospective photo exhibit will be installed in the lobby of the CN Tower from December 16, 2016, to March 31, 2017. Nearly 20 historical photos selected from the rarely-viewed PortsToronto Archive will feature the Port of Toronto and Harbour, Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, the CN Tower and other key points along the Waterfront which have played a significant role in the development of the city as a commercial and cultural hub of Canada.
