A CITY OF INTERSECTIONS

The Ward: Representations and Realities, 1890-1950

Although the buildings of The Ward are long gone, they continue to cast a long shadow in the city’s memory. This exhibition, located at the Ward’s southwest corner, will explore the story of Toronto’s largest immigrant slum, and how its representations often differed with realities in the neighborhood.
