TPL History: It Just Takes A Spark!
First published in 1953, Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 depicts a future in which firemen cause fires, burning books and shattering lives. This book, selected as the One Book for our 2013 Keep Toronto Reading Festival, inspired us to dig through our Digital Archive for pictures of firefighters and their equipment in our own town. We also want to commemorate the devastating fire of April 19, 1904 — the second time a large part of Toronto burnt to the ground.
