From Streets to Playgrounds: Representing Children in Early 20th Century Toronto is the latest exhibit at Toronto Archives. Archival photographs, artifacts and artwork paint a vivid picture of the lives of children in the impoverished Toronto neighbourhood known as 'The Ward.' The exhibit also looks at the official, and unofficial, presence of children in public spaces. Produced in partnership with faculties from Ryerson University and the University of Toronto, it opens on Thursday, September 29 and runs through April 2017.
