A walk in the park

Heritage York Poster
Humber talk

Toronto. Joy Cohnstaedt wrote me recently about the presentation “Walk the Six West: History on the Humber”. This talk and show will be of interest to everyone, especially to those living in the west end of Toronto near the Humber river. The event was written up recently in the Villager – a local newspaper covering the Bloor West Village and Parkdale communities.

I learned from genealogy rersearch that history and geography are important. Historic processes and photographers must be put in context to appreciate the challenges they faced.

Joy writes, “On August 5th a free theatrical experience takes place in Étienne Brûlé Park. Walk along the historic Humber River to encounter Pauline Johnson, Tom Thomson, Joshua Glover, Geraldine Moodie, Sir William Pearce Howland, Mrs. Brown, Anne Leung, and A. B. Rice as presented by Ars Musica, Cheri Maracle, Mixed Company Theatre, Neil Ross and Sara Moyle.

“Heritage York, in collaboration with partner organizations Swansea Historical Society, West Toronto Junction Historical Society, Etobicoke Historical Society, York Pioneer and Historical Society, and Sunnyside Historical Society, with financial support provided by the Government of Ontario through its Ontario 150 Community presents Walk the Six West: History on the Humber.
