The Clara Thomas Archives has and will continue to digitize portions of Toronto Telegram photograph collection, as well as elements of materials that we helped transfer to the archives, which can be accessed at the York University’s Digital Repository, YorkSpace.
With the digital resources and technical support provided by the Clara Thomas Archives & Special Collections we have been able to develop an online platform where we showcase a sample of the records in the form of public history exhibits. You can access our online exhibits by clicking the thumbnail above, or here.
Our first exhibit is a work-in-progress collaborative effort that solicits information and experience from the public. It features a range of historical photographs from the twentieth century from the Toronto Telegram newspaper that document Greek-Canadian activities in the city of Toronto. Visitors to the exhibit are encouraged to comment on images and contribute additional information, identify individuals and share their own memories of living as a Greek-Canadian in the city of Toronto. Contributions will help develop our permanent descriptions of these images before they are submitted to the university’s online digital repository, YorkSpace.
