Bradburn's Local history

Every Sunday lately the Toronto Star has enlivened its "Together" section with a quiz on Toronto history.  Props to Jamie Bradburn, who produces the column.  He draws on a seemingly limitless knowledge of local history matters. (I've lived in T.O. quite a while, but I flame out on his quiz every week.)

Which East York road is named after the founder of Laura Secord chocolates?
Thanks to its historical association with the production of roses, which community is known as “Flower City”?


Bradburn used to write most of the "Historicist" articles for the Torontoist blog, and I was regularly amazed about the amount of deeply researched history that went into every week's .
