AGM & Speaker Series Review

We celebrated the wonderful year that was 2013 and learned about what might have been.  Thank you to all who attended our Annual General Meeting and April Speaker Series.  We welcomed author Mark Osbaldeston who talked on planned projects in Toronto that never came to be, including Eaton’s stores, City Halls, and rail transit.  He has published two books on Unbuilt Toronto, and we were all fascinated by the topic.
