Music, murder and religion in the West Annex feature of walking tour
The City of Toronto Archives invites members of the public to a walking tour to
explore the Annex neighbourhood, where author and broadcaster Jack Batten will
give historical accounts of community landmarks and nefarious deeds.

The walk starts at 1 p.m. on Sunday, October 5, 2003. Leaving from the City of
Toronto Archives at 255 Spadina Rd. (north of Dupont Street and south of Casa
Loma), the 90-minute tour will include stops at Jean Sibelius Square, Loretto
College School and the Church of St. Alban-the-Martyr.

At the end of the walk, participants are invited to visit the current exhibit
at the City of Toronto Archives, "Your Home, Our City: 100 years of public
control over private space." The exhibit documents how Toronto neighbourhoods
have been shaped by the often-competing aspirations and interests of local
government, citizen groups, private interests and individual enterprise.
