Toronto’s Yesterdays

Thursday, November 13, 2008

My friend and neighbour Doug Taylor has just finished his latest book about the history of Toronto, There Never Was a Better Time: Toronto’s Yesterdays. It covers the history of an immigrant family in Toronto during the 1920’s, a dynamic time of urban expansion in the city.

Doug is doing a reading from the book on Sunday, November 30th at 12:30pm at the Metropolitan United Church at Queen and Church.

In addition to being my neighbour, Doug — through some weird cosmic coincidence — taught history at my high school, although a few years before I was a student there.
