The Evolution of Laurier Avenue East Since 1904
July 21, 2019 - 14:00 - 15:30
In this, the centennial year of Sir Wilfrid Laurier’s death, we examine how the avenue that bears his name has changed since 1904 when an American writer described his walk from Nicholas St. to Strathcona Park. He wrote “I have never before seen, in any city, in any land, more people of prominence living in so small an area.”
