Along the Shore examines the Toronto waterfront, past and present, through the lens of four lakefront communities and districts - the Scarborough shore (including the Bluffs), the Beach, the Island and the Lakeshore (New Toronto, Mimico, Humber Bay, and Long Branch). Each retains a direct and immediate connection with Lake Ontario and the natural world. Exploring the history, landscape, geography and people of each of these waterfront areas reveals a rich heritage that has gone largely unrecognized and is for the most part forgotten.
