Leaside Matters, in association with architectural photographer Vik Pahwa, invite you to discover the “big bang” of the Town of Leaside. In 1913 Canada Wire and Cable Company was not only the first industry in Leaside, but also the first company to embrace landscape architect Frederick Gage Todd’s idea of a ‘model town” where industry and residential coexist to foster a thriving community. These houses are still amongst us. Come take a closer look at these wonderful buildings.
