ON THE COVER: “No pandemic doesn’t have an ending” (Dec. 2020)

Based on the “Cowan’s Cocoa” sign, the Gleaner muses that this photo, dating from between 1908 and 1912, was taken just west of the Annex off Sterling Rd.

These intrepid tobogganers embody the winter spirit that will carry us through this holiday season. 

The photo gracing the cover of this year’s December issue is courtesy of the City of Toronto’s Archives the photo and is from Fonds 1244, Item 438A of the William James family fonds.

The Annex Gleaner wishes you and yours lots of safe, outdoorsy fun, and a Happy New Year! Just remember the words of Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam, “No pandemic doesn’t have an ending.”
