Etobicoke Remembered tells the story of how Etobicoke became, successively, a home for aboriginal peoples, a major trading route, an active mill centre, and a suburb that provided homes and jobs for a growing post-World War II population.
This meticulously researched and detailed history gives careful attention to 22 Etobicoke neighbourhoods, telling each one’s history through the years. Founding families, community leaders, and institutions are all explored. Robert A. Given’s deft touch and over 100 old photographs, drawings and maps will make you feel that you have gone back in time to touch the past.
Given thanks his wife of over sixty years, Joyce, who typed the manuscript, and fellow-Etobian Molly Sutherland, who edited the book.
