Historian Barbara Myrvold takes us through the changing face of Scarborough’s population, from thousands of years of Indigenous occupation, to interaction with the newly arrived European colonizers in Upper Canada, and two centuries of additional ethnic and religious groups from around the world who now call Scarborough home. The well-documented book looks at changes in population, including migration from Scarborough to other parts of Ontario, and the township’s progression from a farming community, to suburban borough, to a vibrant multicultural city of Scarborough—that would soon become part of Toronto.
