Stories From The Road

The regular exodus from the city to cottage country makes for interesting road tales. This exhibit examines the social and personal meanings of various routes in, around and out of the GTA. From the establishment of First Nations trails to the cutting of Yonge Street and the construction of 400-series highways, we will look at and share stories from and about the road.
