New bibliography of Toronto history available at City of Toronto historic museums and on Web site
Culture -- A valuable new research tool is available at the click of a mouse to
anyone interested in the history of Toronto. A bibliography listing over 800
titles of books and articles published since 1990 is now featured on the City
of Toronto Web site (
). Compiled by Carl Benn, Chief Curator of
the City's historic museums, the list is inclusive from the Ice Age to

It is organized into useful categories and will be updated regularly.
Torontophiles will find among the rich topics: the story of the Little Italy
neighbourhood in the postwar period; a guide to Toronto's literary life; a
description of the rise of Toronto's alternative theatres; a tour of Toronto's
lost villages; and an account of the glory days of the Toronto Maple Leafs. The
length of the list is testimony to the city's huge and growing diversity.
