The Toronto in Time app will take you back…
Toronto in Time is a free mobile app for iOS and Android that highlights the history of Toronto through “then and now” photos, slideshows, trails, and historical stories for more than 150 sites!– Cities In TIme
Through the Toronto in time app, I was able to learn about various inventors, musicians, entrepreneurs, bank robbers, artists, visionaries and dreamers who all helped in the painting of Toronto’s canvas of history. You can search by theme, neighborhood, map, or follow specially curated trails.
“Cities in Time” was conceived by James H. Marsh, Editor in Chief of The Canadian Encyclopedia. He sought to make history interesting, accessible and relevant to the modern person, and using mobile technology seemed like a natural choice. “The most appealing thing about history,” said Mr. Marsh, “is that it’s all around us. There is history in street corners, and in parks, and old storefronts.”
