About this Project: Background
|The 1924 update was based on the three-volume 1910 edition|
Note: For this version, I’ve lazily re-used the key plates from the 1910 edition (but the linked, individual detail plates are from 1924). This was an expedient measure that saved considerable setup time and effort for me; however there are minor differences in the key plates for the 1924 update (e.g. the Waterfront). Should you need to examine the key plates specifically, here are links to the individual sheets for your inspection:
Central city (Volume 1, Plate 1a)
Waterfront (Plate 1b)
West of Dufferin Street, south of Annette Street (Plate 51)
West of Spadina Road, north of Annette Street (Plate 52)
East of Pape Avenue, south of St. Clair Avenue (Plate 101)
East of Bathurst Street, north of St. Clair Avenue (Plate 102)
I also do not have scans of the title pages and do not know if they were meaningfully altered; I refer you instead to the 1910 edition if you want to see them.
The method of ‘sticker’ updates is particularly noticeable comparing the same plates from 1924 to those of 1910.

And yes, I know 1924 is not in the Victorian era. I originally put this site up with just the years 1884, 1890, 1893, and 1899. Then I kept going...
