Join us for a preview of a new exhibit opening at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse – “All in a Day’s Work: Industry and Growth in Old Town.”
Working life wasn’t easy in Old Town Toronto. Hours were long, pay was low and workplaces could be dangerous. Between 1870 and 1910, the neighbourhood boomed with factories and workshops, where men, women and children worked. Through family stories, photographs and artifacts, “All in a Day’s Work: Industry and Growth in Old Town” sheds light on life inside Old Town Toronto’s stores, factories and homes during this time – exploring the industrial transformation of Toronto’s oldest neighbourhood.
This exhibit is curated by University of Toronto, Master of Museum Studies students Dylan Dammermann, Jennifer Ford and Alyssa Lake, in collaboration with the Ontario Heritage Trust. It will be open on Mondays and Tuesdays at various times, continuing through 2016. Details will be posted on Facebook and Twitter @ONHeritage.
