Produced and published by one of the most well-regarded Canadian producers, the Copp Clark Company, founded in 1869 and remains in business to this day. Copp Clark published numerous maps, atlases, and birds-eye perspectives in addition to books and periodicals and was one of the largest publishing firms in Canada in the late nineteenth century. Toronto remains Canada’s largest city and has been an important cultural and economic hub for the Nation since it was incorporated in 1834. Toronto became the capital of the province of Ontario in 1867 and was the capital of Canada for two brief periods from 1849 to 1852 and 1856 to 1858.
Toronto was a major destination for immigrants during the nineteenth century, with Irish Catholics becoming the largest single ethnic group by the 1850s. Their cultural influences would remain a critical part of the regional character for the remainder of the nineteenth century and the early portions of the twentieth century. By the 1860s, the city had established an extensive sanitation system, gas-powered street lamps and became the largest alcohol producer in North America. The completion of numerous railroads in the 1850s had expanded access to markets in the Midwest and Northeastern United States.
This work's distinctive style and unique aesthetic immediately transport the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. The latter portion of the nineteenth century saw significant growth, prosperity, and transformation for Toronto, and this is an authentic piece of the city’s cartographical history.
