This book was produced under the authority of the City of Toronto as an accompaniment and memento of the celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of the city's incorporation in 1834. It provides an excellent history of the settlement from it's first incarnation as a fortified trading post under French protection through the establishment of "Muddy" York town and the subsequent transition to Toronto. The history of York begins with Colonel Simcoe setting up his two room tent and progresses through to the "modern" city of 1934. All aspects of the city's life are reviewed and many interesting and some surprising facts are revealed.
This would obviously be a useful book for anyone researching ancestors who lived in Toronto, giving them a context to their lives.
