William James' Toronto Views offers an appealing look at the city through the eyes of master photographer William James, a prolific photojournalist who took more than 10,000 images of the city during the early twentieth century.

This book reproduces over 100 images from the 5,800 lantern slides in the James collection at the City of Toronto Archives, many hand-tinted. There are early views of the waterfront and downtown, of magnificent homes, of prominent figures at public events and ordinary people going about daily life. Art writer Christopher Hume provides an engaging introductory essay that discusses James, his work, and early twentieth-century Toronto.

William James' Toronto Views offers an intimate and unparalleled portrait of the burgeoning city as it grew into the twentieth century.
