  1. This is most interesting. I was not born in Toronto, but raised there. There are a couple of really interesting, well written histories about Toronto by Adam Bunch.
    The first is ‘The Toronto Book of the Dead’ and the recent one is ‘The Toronto book of Love’ …. both well researched, fascinating and well written histories.

    I hope other readers will take note.
