Toronto:
Cabbagetown

This page presents some of exterior lanterns
of the Cabbagetown houses. Cabbagetown is
approximately located between Shuter St. (South)
and Wellesley St. E (North), Sherbourne St. (West)
and River St. (East).
Cabbagetown's name possibly originates from
the Macedonian and Irish immigrants who moved to the neighbourhood in the late 1840s. Being very poor they grew cabbage in their front yards.
All photos were taken in May and July of 2002.

- Amelia Street;
