Toronto has grown to such a size and come to possess such a scope of urban possibilities that it defies generalization. The city outgrew its original nickname of Hogtown decades ago, and the moniker Toronto the Good is just as dated and irrelevant. Now Toronto is a city with a readily identifiable skyline that speaks of skyscrapers and prosperity. But it is also a conglomeration of distinct neighbourhoods and immigrant hubs, and each tells a different story of the different people that play a part of the whole. Combined, its temples to sport and religion are sometimes interchangeably grand. The seasonal festivals run from film to art, Caribbean culture to Greek food. The best of its historic hotels, theatres, and concert halls are as iconic as its immediately recognizable streetcars and streetscapes. In these pages award-winning photographer George Fischer turns his revealing lens on every aspect of that rich visual fabric, to uncover all of Toronto's beauty and truth, and Jacob Richler adds the words that fill in the picture.
