THE THINGS WE KEEP: A MATERIAL HISTORY OF TORONTO’S PUBLIC HEALTH

The artefacts that come down to us from the past are more than keepsakes; they are material documents of past people and communities. They can, if we consider them carefully, give us new ways of understanding the past and new approaches to familiar stories. The history of public health, a vast topic touching many aspects of society and culture, can be appreciated through the variety of objects that survive.
