Toronto: A Pictorial Celebration
By Bruce Bell
Photographs by Elan Penn
I absolutely loved this pictorial book of Toronto. It brought back memories of my Toronto days when I lived in this marvelous city. The first few pages of the book show some of the historical pictures of Toronto from the late 1800’s to 1940’s. They are breathtaking and priceless.
The second part of the book focuses on the rise of the imperial city. The photographs of the CN Tower, St. Lawrence Hall, Toronto Island, and so on, are breathtaking. I also loved the pictures of the big churches and cathedrals in Toronto. I had no idea that St. Michael’s Cathedral is the oldest Catholic Church in Toronto. How GREAT to know!
This book showcases the city I first called home. I loved Toronto and always will. What a GREAT celebratory representation of the biggest and best city in Canada! Well, at least that’s my opinion….
