Riverdale: East of the Don
In its first 50 years, the city of Toronto changed from a rough settlement to a booming city with a voracious appetite for land. Riverdale: East of the Don celebrates the history of one neighbourhood through the stories of some of Toronto's founding families, against a backdrop of major international events. From the American Revolution and the War of 1812, to the waves of immigration that made Riverdale one of Toronto's most diverse areas, historian Elizabeth Muir explores the history of this iconic Toronto neighbourhood.
