Additional Notes

From The Publisher*As well as celebrating forgotten architectural treasures, Lost Toronto looks at buildings that have changed use, vanished under a wave of new construction, or been drastically transformed. Beautiful archival photographs and informative text allows the reader to take a nostalgic journey back in time to visit some of the lost treasures that the city let slip through its grasp. Organized chronologically, starting with the earliest losses and ending with the latest, the book features much-loved Toronto institutions that have been consigned to history. Losses include: King's College, Holland House, Hotel Hanlan, St. Patrick's Market, The Grand Opera House, Metropolitan Methodist Church, Old Union Station, St. Andrew's Market, Yonge Street Arcade, Sunnyside Beach Amusement Park, Shea's Hippodrome, S. S. Cayuga, High Park Mineral Baths, Tivoli Theatre, Riverdale Zoo, Odeon Carlton, Cyclorama on Front Street, Eaton's Santa Claus Parade, Colonial Tavern, Sam the Record Man, and The World's Biggest Book Store.
