Editor’s Note: The Following is an abridged version of a story written as part of a collaboration with The Globe and Mail. The story originally appeared on November 6, 2015.
Even though it isn’t that close to downtown, I noticed the surrounding park had a little bit of Toronto in it.
Scattered around, I saw old statues, columns, and archways. These were all salvaged from buildings that were demolished in downtown Toronto.
It was fascinating to see Toronto’s history in such an unexpected place.
