North York Historical Society April 2021 Meeting: “Memories of North York” with Bill Aird

April 28, 2021 @ 7:00 pm

Speaker: Bill Aird, VP of the NYHS Board

WWI was followed by a rapid expansion of the city of Toronto. The growth of population north of the city limits quickly caused problems with the largely agricultural region north of the city. For a number of reasons which will become evident in this talk this led to the beginning of North York as a region separate from York County.

North York had a unique history during the Great Depression. WWII was followed by a great urbanization; changing North York from a rural farming area to the current urban giant. You may be reminded of fond memories, or things you didn’t remember or even things you didn’t know about North York. Enjoy!
