About the Exhibit

The Cottage Years provided a nostalgic trip through photo albums of years past as a means of exploring the tourism industry that shaped the community of Long Branch 135 years ago. The exhibition brought together photographs, maps, artefacts, and illustrations from across seven decades of local history set alongside paintings of Etobicoke Creek by local artist, Pat Rice.

 

The exhibition was created in partnership between the Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre and the Long Branch Neighbourhood Associations’ Long Branch 135 Initiatives and History and Culture Committee in recognition of the 135th anniversary of Long Branch, Ontario.
