Historical and Personal Photos

The bit of material here is intended to present historical and archival images and documents of the history of the Toronto Islands and the community.  The material derives from various archives and libraries and are in the public domain or are used with permission.

We hope to augment this with material generously shared from the personal collections of past and present Islanders and aficionados.

This additional material is being collected and presented here:


The Toronto Island History Project is coordinated by Edward (Ted) English, Eric Light, and Eric Zhelka.  They can be contacted at the website above.
