Overview

"When moved to Toronto more than 75 years ago, I thought that it was a dull city. I was only nine years old, but compared to my former home-Washington, D. C. -Toronto just didn't seem to have the same excitement� How things have changed. The past three-quarters of a century has seen Toronto grow into one of the most exciting places in the world."

So declares entrepreneur Edwin Mirvish in his introduction - co-authored with son and fellow businessman David Mirvish - to Toronto: The World within a City . In their joint testimonial, the Mirvishes write of a vital place-one that David Mirvish calls "an eminently livable city," and that Edwin Mirvish describes as "a city of parks and greenery�a place where big business and commerce thrive, and . . .a place where you can live in quiet residential areas." Applauding Toronto's growing multiculturalism and the diversity it continues to create, the authors also celebrate the city's simultaneous embracing of its past its eagerness to greet the future.

Aided by hundreds of beautiful images culled from the work of the area's finest photographers, Edwin and David Mirvish set the stage for Toronto's natural beauty and man-made magnificence, including what David Mirvish terms the city's outstanding modern architecture.
