I heard an interview with Ed Levy on CBC Radio’s Metro Morning a week or so ago and was wondering where I could get a copy of his book Rapid Transit in Toronto: A Century of Plans, Progress, Politics & Paralysis.
Fortunately, a friend of mine, Sid Olvet – who along with his wife Jane Olvet, also a long-time friend, shared some great new information with us about the history of Long Branch during our May 5, 2013 Jane’s Walk – has told me about a May 10, 2013 Globe and Mail article that discusses the book.
[If you click on the link in the first sentence of this blog post, you can access the book, which provides a remarkable overview of 100 years of transit planning in Toronto. If you click on the second link in the second paragraph of this blog post, you can access the Globe and Mail article.]
The book features an extensive collection of historical maps related to a century of transit planning in Toronto – along with the stories behind the maps.
I’m delighted that through an email conversation with Sid Olvet, regarding the plans for the sand beach at Marie Curtis Park, I’ve been able to locate the link leading to Ed Levy’s book.
