Description

First published in 1982, I Remember Sunnyside is a mine of golden memories, bringing back to life an earlier Toronto, only hints of which remain today.

Like the city itself, Sunnyside was an everchanging landscape from its heady opening days in the early 1920s to its final sad demolition in the 1950s. The book captures the spirit of the best of times a magical era which can only be recaptured in memory and photographs. It also presents the reality of a newer Toronto where change, although necessary, is sometimes regrettable.

Contributor Notes

Mike Filey, popular Toronto historian, is a member of the Ontario Heritage Foundation and the Toronto Historical Board. In addition to "The Way We Were," Mike's regular column in the Toronto Sunday Sun, he is the author of many books on Toronto, including Discover & Explore Toronto's Waterfront and the phenomenally popular Toronto Sketches series.

Editorial Review

"It is a tribute to Filey's storytelling abilities that he can still tantalize so many Torontonians with the memory of an amusement park that ignominiously met the wrecker's ball more than 40 years ago."
