A Sept. 26, 2017 Etobicoke Guardian article is entitled: “New exhibit at Toronto Archives celebrates life in the suburbs: ‘Wide Open World’ photo exhibition runs through August 2018.”

The article reads:

A new photo exhibit illustrating life in Toronto’s postwar suburbs is now open to the public.

The Toronto Archives’ Wide Open World: A Celebration of the Suburbs in Toronto exhibit features photographs of people “raising families, building communities, working and celebrating together” in the former suburban neighbourhoods of Etobicoke, North York and Scarborough from the 1950s to the 1980s.

“This remarkable collection of photographs conveys a strong sense of what life in Toronto’s suburbs has meant to so many people,” city archivist Carol Radford-Grant said in a statement.

“Wide Open World shows residents making new friends in brand new spaces to create and experience community. People coming together to work, to play and to live.”

The free exhibit runs through August 2018 at the City of Toronto Archives at 255 Spadina Rd.
