The York Eglinton BIA, in partnership with York Museum, presents Eglinton Cityscapes, Transit and Transition, a photo installation in storefront windows exploring our urban history and neighbourhood origins.

The photographs tell a story of our evolution as a working class neighbourhood built along accessible transit.

There are many histories intertwined as the story unfolds. Take a walk, have a look, and share our experience.

All displays are presented in store front windows along our 1km corridor from Dufferin Street to Marlee Avenue.

For some of the background story, see our blogpost.
