Don Mills: Canada’s Most Modern Integrated Community

DonMillsCommunity

Here’s a little something I just found from the Toronto Public Library archives. To have a look and zoom in at all the copy and the pics – including those of of the original office buildings around the area (seen on the right) such as IBM, Philco, Shirriff’s, the Upjohn Company, Barber Greene, Hallicrafters Canada, Hugh C. MacLeans Publications and Perfect Circle, simply click here.

Also, there’s another reference to the mysterious ‘lake’ that never happened – ‘Damming of Don River in co-operation with Don Valley Conservation Authority will create a mile-long lake. Project will include facilities for bathing, tennis, picnic grounds.’
