This book is like ‘lifestyles of the rich and famous’ set in the 1800s. It’s the legacy of the wealthiest Toronto families as told through the architecture of their homes, almost all of which also included areas for servants to live. This is a good book if you’re curious about the names of different neighbourhoods, streets, and buildings, or how people lived back then.
