Distant Shorelines

Andrew Varden

When Fort York was built in 1793 it was on the shore of Lake Ontario; now it's about half a kilometre away.

Where there was once water industries came and went and a neighbourhood appeared.

Join us in this walk along the old and new shoreline where we'll examine the rich history of the area and the current urban design.
