A Cabbage Patch No More
237 Carlton St
Toronto, ON M5A 2L2
One of the oldest sections of Toronto, this historic area has grown from a World War I lower class housing project to the largest enclave of Victorian homes in North America. With the advent of the railway business in Canada, a rail complex at the end of the Don River attracted Irish immigrants fleeing the Great War for the relative safety of Toronto. Much as today, the community was a strong-knit group; the only difference is that today's residents no longer grow cabbages on their front patches of dirt. Today its streets straddle a line between hip and gentrification.
