Historicist: Happy 50th Birthday, North York!

Celebrating a suburban golden jubilee back in '72.

20120512mirrorcover


The summer of 1972 was a momentous one for the Borough of North York. The growing suburban municipality celebrated its 50th anniversary that year with a series of special events throughout that spring and summer. Among the souvenirs was a special edition of the Mirror newspaper which traced North York’s past, present, and future, excerpts of which are featured in the accompanying gallery.

All images and quotes in the gallery taken from the Mirror Special Jubilee Edition (June 1972).

Every Saturday, Historicist looks back at the events, places, and characters that have shaped Toronto into the city we know today.
