Toronto in Time – Free App

 

 

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! Users can meet a cast of characters that includes the inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, bank robbers, visionaries and dreamers who have enriched Toronto’s history. Users with or without a mobile device can discover all the features of Toronto in Time online. This project is a partnership of the Historica-Dominion Institute, the City of Toronto’s Museum Services, and Heritage Toronto

Through Toronto in Time, discover the story of the club that hosted the Rolling Stones, U2, and Marilyn Monroe; explore where soldiers of the War of 1812 lie buried; stand on the site of a 17th century First Nations village, and much more. Meet a cast of characters that includes inventors, musicians, entrepreneurs, bank robbers, artists, visionaries and dreamers who paint the rich portrait of Toronto’s history.
