May Speaker Series: Whiskey and Wickedness: Yonge Street – 100 Taverns in 100 Miles

Yonge Street, the longest street in the world, offers variety to travellers, from the lights, shops, and malls in the heart of Toronto, to smaller streetscapes in small towns, to the reaches of Northern Ontario. In the 1800s, if you travelled the same stretch of road, you would have encountered taverns and inns, all with stories to tell.  On Tuesday May 19, join author Larry Cotton as he shares such stories, from his latest publication Whiskey & Wickedness: Yonge Street – 100 Taverns in 100 Miles.

The Oshawa Historical Society’s May Speaker Series is taking place Tuesday May 19 at 7PM. The meetings are held at the Oshawa Public Library, McLaughlin Branch Auditorium, located at 65 Bagot Street, Oshawa. Admission to the Oshawa Historical Society Speaker Series is $3 or FREE for members of the Oshawa Historical Society.
