Toronto Sketches 5
Mike Fileyâ€™s "The Way We Were" column in the Toronto Sun continues to be one of the paperâ€™s most popular features. In Toronto Sketches 5, the fifth volume in Dundurn Pressâ€™s Toronto Sketches series, Filey brings together some of the best of his columns from 1996 and 1997.
Each column looks at Toronto as it was, and contributes to our understanding of how Toronto became what it is. Illustrated with photographs of the cityâ€™s people and places of the past, Toronto Sketches 5 is a nostalgic journey for the long-time Torontonian, and a voyage of discovery for the newcomer.
