OLD MILL TORONTO and the TTC Will Unveil the Pictorial Tribute
to the Humber Valley and Kingsway Area

Wednesday June 18, 2014 – 1:00 p.m.
Westminster Room at the Old Mill Toronto

In Commemoration of the Centennial Celebration of the Old Mill Toronto, established August 4, 1914, you are cordially invited to join us for the unveiling of our pictorial tribute to the early history of the Humber Valley and The Kingsway area.

The unique signage incorporates rare historic photographs and drawings dating back to the 1600s when Huron Indians made their homes on the banks of the Humber River, to the early 1900s through World War 1 and the Depression Era. The distinctive display will remain on the walls of the East and
Westbound platforms of the Old Mill Subway Station permanently.

The event is intended to be an informal presentation and casual reception with our guest list comprising members of City Council, chief officers of the TTC, Toronto Heritage Preservation representation and Old Mill staff recognized for 20+ years of service to the Old Mill.

Robert Home Smith opened the Old Mill Tea Garden in the fall of 1914 and it quickly became a favorite Toronto haven of leisure and recreation. Today guests continue to visit the Old Mill to enjoy a beautiful part of Toronto’s history, and 100 years later, the Old Mill is as esteemed as ever. This legendary Toronto landmark continues to be one of the most popular Toronto destinations enjoyed by guests from across Canada and around the world.

For more information about the historic relationship with the Toronto community, please see the attached History of the Old Mill. You can also view our Centennial Celebrations page on our website, where you will find more information as well more historical photos.
