A bittersweet look at a less harried age and at the great properties that were eventually swallowed up by Canada's largest modern city. As the town grew, each new generation of affluent landholders built their gracious pastoral retreats just beyond its boundaries. Some became the focal points of today's metropolitan neighborhoods. Some are remembered only in street names. Includes Oak Hill, Dover Court, Rusholme, Hazelburn, Shelborne Villa, Spadina, Rosedale, Runnymede, Sunnyside, Knockaloe, and over 60 more.
