Take a tour and learn about what was once here.

Ghost Signs from the past still discreetly (and sometimes no-so-discreetly) remind us of the businesses or organizations that once operated on the streets of the Bloorcourt neighbourhoood.

We have collaborated with Katherine Taylor (author of 𝑻𝒐𝒓𝒐𝒏𝒕𝒐: π‘ͺπ’Šπ’•π’š 𝒐𝒇 π‘ͺπ’π’Žπ’Žπ’†π’“π’„π’† 1800-1960) to help us uncover some of the facts and stories of the past.

As we always do, we will provide a snack or two from Bloorcourt businesses to keep everyone fueled on our walk.
