As we pass through our lives we meet people who are either related to us, friends, business contacts, competitors, enemies
and many other stripes. If we are lucky we have a great friend and in my case it was Al Eisen. As they say he died too young
6 years ago and left a great hole in my heart.
As a remembrance to Al I felt you might to join me in a memory walk visiting many of the places Al and I would walk to. Since
I am in the walking tour business it was a busman's holiday when we walked many of the places I would tour with other people.
He would take great delight if he could tell me a historic story that I didn't know.
This year we will be doing Cabbagetown, Cork town and the Distillery. We will walk to work as they did in Victorian Times.
You’ll hear the history and view the charming back streets and homes of Old Cabbagetown with their romantic Victorian
architecture. Cabbagetown has the largest collection of Victorian homes in North America. This is where Protestant Irish working
men lived. We will travel south passing through Corktown where the Catholic Irish lived to visit Gooderham & Worts in the
Distillery district where many worked. This Distillery was the largest Distillery in the British Empire and had over 88 buildings
that made up the complex. Today it has been converted into a pedestrian mall with shops, restaurants and galleries. Meet at
the northeast corner of Wellesley and Parliament. This Toronto Walking Tour is Two Hours in length
We will meet at 10 a.m. at the north east corner of Parliament and Wellesley. Most people will park at the Distillery and
find their way to where we start by either walking up, taking the TTC, or a cab.
You are my guests for this Memory Walk. Al would have enjoyed the walk, as I am sure you will.
If you would like to come along as my guest please contact me by phoning me at 416-367-0380 or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
