The Cabbagetown Preservation Association (CPA) has recently published a beautifully illustrated book entitled Adversity, Resilience, Prosperity: The Odyssey of a Canadian Inner City Neighbourhood. Cabbagetown 1941-2011.

The book is produced by the CPA Cabbagetown People team on the social tapestry of Cabbagetown neighbourhoods. The book focuses on the most volatile changes which occurred during the 70 years between the 1940s and the present in Cabbagetown – one of the most colourful and one of the most disparate places in the city of Toronto.

Employing data, charts and graphs, and enriched by images from the past and present, the book takes you on an illuminating journey of life in this historic Canadian inner city neighbourhood.

The book is available at 2 wonderful Cabbagetown shops at a cost of $20 (plus HST): Kendall & Co. at their new location at 541 Parliament Street and Spruce Home Decor at 455 Parliament Street.
