Program Description:

Have you ever wondered who first set food in this place we call Toronto? How did this place come to be? Objects you see in this show will take you on that journey.


Episode 1
See how objects from the past set a course for the Toronto we know today. An arrowhead reveals the routes of Toronto's first peoples; and a map by a 13 year-old became the first to define our new city.

Episode 2
See how a Wanted poster, a Whisky Bottle and a Don Valley Brick transformed Hogtown in the Victorian Era.

Episode 3
See how objects from Toronto's past such as lost buildings of Guildwood Park; a buried bridge in the Annex and a batteryless radio take us from Hogtown to Toronto the Good.

Episode 4
See how Toronto takes on the challenges of the Baby Boom with Honest Ed's Signs, houses in Don Mills and a pamphlet that explains How to Ride Canada's First Subway.
