Cartes Postales

A plug for Adam Bunch's Toronto Dreams Project

Postcards left about public spaces. Postcards that connect to historical anecdotes and figures. Postcard drop off spots are documented in a blog and via Instagram.

No 41 - one of my favourites

Emma Goldman was the world's most notorious anarchist in the late 1800s and the early 1900s. Exiled from her home in the United States, she would eventually spend some of her final years living in Toronto, giving speeches, organizing meetings and raising money for the causes in which she believed including pacifism, labour rights and birth control. She died while staying at a friend's home on Vaughan Road.

Postcards have been left at the place she died and places where she spoke.

And so for day 1959
