Rate this:
Cabbagetown is one of Toronto's most vibrant downtown neighbourhoods: tiny workers' cottages stand cheek-by-jowl with grand Victorian homes; it has parks, gardens, theatres, a working farm, and a main street that boasts an eclectic mix of pleasant shops and restaurants.

This beautifully illustrated book captures the highlights of Cabbagetown's lively history. Penina Coopersmith traces Cabbagetown's origins in the eighteenth century, growth in the Victorian era, decline in the thirties, and renaissance today. Also included are two walking tours that highlight historic and contemporary buildings and sites.

Lively and informative, Cabbagetown: The Story of a Victorian Neighbourhood offers residents and visitors alike a fascinating portrait of one of Toronto's most interesting neighbourhoods.
