Mike Filey was born in Toronto in 1941. He has written more than two dozen books on various facets of Toronto's past and for more than thirty-five years has contributed a popular column, "The Way We Were," to the Toronto Sunday Sun. His Toronto Sketches series is more popular now than ever before.
Mike Filey’s Toronto Sketches, Books 4-6
Mike Filey’s column "The Way We Were" first appeared in the Toronto Sunday Sun not long after the first edition of the paper hit the newsstands on September 16, 1973. Now, over four decades later, Filey’s column has enjoyed an uninterrupted stretch as one of the newspaper’s most popular features. In 1992 a number of his columns were reprinted in Toronto Sketches: "The Way We Were." Since then another ten volumes have been published. Each column looks at Toronto as it was and contributes to our understanding of how the city became what it is. Illustrated with photographs of the city’s people and places of the past, Toronto Sketches are nostalgic journeys for the long-time Torontonian and a voyage of discovery for the newcomer. This special bundle collects volumes four to six, packed with fascinating information about Toronto’s history.
