Landmark report released on "Lost Historic Sites"
  
Urban Development Services - The City of Toronto has released a landmark report
that documents and maps 250 buildings, landscapes and landmarks that have
disappeared from the urban landscape, but were significant to the development
of the City.

The Toronto Historical Association and the Maps Project prepared the report, "A
Glimpse of Toronto's History: Opportunities for the Commemoration of Lost
Historic Sites" for City Planning as a background report for the new Official
Plan.

The descriptions of lost historic sites tell a fascinating story of wars,
rebellions and upheaval, as well as population growth, industry, social
activity and commercial enterprise. The report is intended as a reference for
the naming of buildings and streets, the writing of plaques and other
commemoration activities. The report will inspire people to do much more to
research and commemorate the stories of the people and events of Toronto's past.

"A Glimpse of Toronto's History: Opportunities for the Commemoration of Lost
Historic Sites" is available from the City of Toronto Resource Centre on the
ground floor of City Hall for $22.50 (telephone: 416-392-7410). Examples of
some of the 250 lost historic sites are also described on this Web page:
