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 will highlight several sites documented in Mr. Batten's new book, "The
Annex: The Story of a Toronto Neighbourhood." After the tour, participants are
invited to return to the Archives where Mr. Batten will sign copies of the
book, which will be available for sale.

Participants may also take in the Archives' new exhibit, "Signs of Urban Life,"
which documents the history of public signage in the city.

The walk starts at 1 p.m. on Sunday, October 3. Leaving from the Archives, the
90-minute tour will include stops at Jean Sibelius Square, Loretto College
School and the Church of St. Alban-the-Martyr.

The Archives is located at 255 Spadina Rd., just south of Casa Loma and a short
walk north from the Dupont subway station.
