Toronto, the capital of the province of Ontario, is a major Canadian city along Lake Ontario’s northwestern shore. It’s a dynamic metropolis with a core of soaring skyscrapers, all dwarfed by the iconic, free-standing CN Tower.
Toronto also has many green spaces, from the orderly oval of Queen’s Park to 400-acre High Park and its trails, sports facilities and zoo.
To be as this day, Toronto has experienced a long period of strong development and change. Mr T.O. took pictures of this city in 2014 and put them together with the 1959 ones to see how it has changed over the past 55 years.
