Lord and Lady Minto going to the races from the home of Sir Joseph Flavelle, ca. 1903. From the City of Toronto Archives, Fonds 1568, Item 340.

For the city’s wealthy and social elite, as historian Antoinette Duplessis shows, horse-drawn vehicles were emblems of a successful life and they owned numerous vehicles, each suited to a specific purpose like phaetons, victorias, roadsters, and surreys.
