From the 1870s to the Fifties, waves of immigrants to Toronto – Irish, Jewish, chinese language and Italian, between others – landed in ‘The Ward’ within the centre of downtown. Deemed a slum, the world used to be filled with derelict housing and ‘ethnic’ companies; it was once razed within the Nineteen Fifties to make method for a grand civic plaza and glossy urban corridor. Archival photographs and contributions from a large choice of voices eventually inform the tale of this advanced neighbourhood and the teachings it bargains approximately immigration and poverty in significant towns. participants comprise historians, politicians, architects and descendents of Ward res­idents on topics corresponding to playgrounds, tuberculosis, bootlegging and chinese language laundries.
