Mayor David Miller will appear at Indigo’s flagship store to sign Toronto’s commemorative book, “Toronto’s Visual Legacy, Official City Photography from 1856 to the Present.” The book was published by the City of Toronto Archives to celebrate the City’s 175th anniversary and provides an impressive visual history of Toronto’s changing urban landscape.

Date: Wednesday, May 6
Time: 6 p.m.
Location: Indigo, 55 Bloor St. W. (at Bay)

The mayor will talk about some of his favourite images in the book and why he likes them. The authors of the book, Steve Mackinnon, Karen Teeple and Michele Dale, will join Mayor Miller in signing copies of the book and answering questions.

“Toronto’s Visual Legacy” is published by James Lorimer & Company and retails for $45.
