The outskirts of Toronto.  The land north, east and west of Toronto had been occupied by the Anishinabek, the Haudenosauneega, and the Huron-Wendat, for some 12 to 15,000 years. It was purchased bytreaty in 1805. The woods were cleared by the settlers for farming. Eventually, as the city grew and the suburbs sprawled, the farms were cleared for housing tracts. This continues at an accelerated pace and all that remains are glimpses, and small outcrops, of what once was.    A work in progress
