Illustration Sunday: The Great Fire

2008_02_24_IS_GREATFIRE.jpg
There’s an eerie similarity between images of last week’s Queen West fire and The Great Fire of 1904. The largest fire in Toronto history consumed one hundred and four buildings—leaving in its wake skeletal brick facades and mounds of rubble. Incredibly, neither fire claimed any lives.
