1818 Lieut. G. Phillpotts: Plan of York
How did ‘Muddy York’ develop into the modern metropolis we live in?

These important maps from our past reveal the essential tension of this city — between the quest for growth, and the heavy influence of what came before. They reflect a municipality in constant flux, and give insight into our contemporary urban identity.

And besides, who doesn’t love poring over old maps of Toronto?
