Toronto Harbourfront Photo Gallery

The entire Harbourfront area was created by lakefilling in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and was used initially for shipping and industrial activities. The lakefilling was undertaken in order to expand the City's port facilities, incorporating links between water, rail and road that would connect Central Canada to the rest of the world. Early commercial and industrial users included Harbour Brick, Tip Top Tailors, Canada Malting, Maple Leaf Mills, and the Dominion Shipbuilding Company.

Harbourfront continues to change dramatically, with industrial buildings, warehouses and dock facilities now giving way to a vibrant mix of residential buildings, recreational amenities, tourism draws and cultural facilities.
