Toronto is consistently rated as one of the world's most livable cities, but that's because of a combination of many factors and not the result of a few dramatic and photogenic ones.
The British began to settle in what became Toronto in 1793. When the town was incorporated in 1834 it had a population of 9,000. The current metro population is 5.5 million, of whom over half are new Canadians born in other countries.
This is not a photojournalistic portrait of contemporary Toronto, just some photos of some of the obvious main attractions of my home town and of some of its less obvious but still relatively conventional features. These include the CN Tower that dominates the skyline, downtown landmarks, the Harbourfront parks and recreation development, the Toronto Island Park, Ontario Place, and some parts of Toronto that have been here a bit longer, like Fort York, High Park, and Casa Loma.
