Tall Tales of The Junction

When: Thursday, January 15, 2015, 6pm

Venue: Junction Craft Brewery
Address: 90 Cawthra Avenue, unit 1
The Junction, Toronto, ON M6N 3C7

The fundraising event is not unlike those the WTJHS has hosted in the past. Junction “legends,” such as journalist A.B. Rice, first librarian Elizabeth MacCallum, chief coroner Dr. G.W. Clendenan, chief of police and first Mountie Josiah Royce and Rev T.E.E. Shore have made appearances at such events as 'The Wild Wild Junction' Ghost stories pub crawl.

Tall Tales of the Junction will be “like a pub crawl without the crawl,” said Ross, “because it’s winter.”

The Junction legends will again share their favourite stories while audience members will also be invited to share their own stories of the neighbourhood for a chance to win historical prizes.

The $20 admission fee will help the WTJHS continue to do its work, like advocating for the conservation of the neighbourhood’s built heritage. The event will include a presentation based on the most recent installment of the WTJHS’ graphic novel.

Admission includes snacks and a pint of ale from a Junction Craft Brewery special cask.

Tickets are available at Annette Street Library, 145 Annette St.
