Old Toronto News stories

I have started a page of news stories from old Toronto Newspapers that have caught my eye.

One of the reasons I collect old newspapers is for the stories. I think newspapers of the past give us a better glimpse into history than textbooks do.
When I am beginning a family tree one of the first things I do is read newspapers from the areas my subjects lived. I find more clues in old news clippings than I do looking through records.
