Fifty Years of Subways in Toronto!



The upcoming anniversary has been receiving considerable attention in the press. This article in the Toronto Star quotes me (I was never interviewed) and kindly plugs the website (while getting the address wrong). This article from the Globe and Mail also looks back.

I’m pleased to say that we have a complete history of the birth and growth of the Toronto subway network. An essay on the early subway proposals can be found here, followed by a history of the original Yonge subway line. The complete list of articles can be found here. Enjoy!
