Han Dong's Summer Newsletter has three Heritage Walking Tours listed but the Workers' History tour caught my eye. It starts at Spadina and College (southeast corner) and finishes at Queen. The tour might head south on Beverly near the AGO and pass in front of the historic Chinese Garment Workers' building:
A $10 contribution from those participating is appreciated. Please forward any photos from the tour on the history of the neighbourhood for posting to this blog. Enjoy the walk!
A Toronto entrepreneur! Cycles at 707 Dundas is a full service bike shop. If you're outside the 'hood and need a tune up or other assistance, stop by and say hello to the owner. Thanks for the chat!
Congratulations on another successful gathering courtesy of the Laneway Project! Rush Lane between Augusta and Portland was the place to be Sunday with hundreds of people enjoying laneway life. Activities included brightening up waste bins, games of giant checkers, Jenga, and ping pong, and a record swap, but it was the fabulous drumming and live music which helped maintain the vibe throughout the afternoon. Food was laid on by members of the Queen Street BIA and drink stations were there to quench a thirst, all helped add colour and bring excitement to the 'hood. Even the Alex Wilson Community Garden, welcomed many visitors appreciative of the green space in this corner of the city. Thanks to all for coming, and cheers again!
