Often it’s the grand buildings and large public spaces that capture the public’s imagination about a city. But the character of a city is more often reflected in the under-appreciated and overlooked elements that dot the urban landscape. Toronto has a fantastic collection of these elements: from fully intact bridges buried underground to a cemetery enclosed in a highway off-ramp; from mid-century houses that hide electrical transformers to Cold War-era air raid sirens still installed in parks. We solve lingering mysteries and uncover forgotten urban treasures that reveal the true charm of Toronto and its neighbourhoods.
