On Thursday the students visited Toronto’s historic Distillery District. The main historic site here is the Gooderham and Worts Distillery, which began in 1832. Interestingly, alcohol production played a big role in Toronto’s history, especially during the American prohibition during the 1920s, when alcohol was produced in Toronto and secretly, brought over to the Americans. In the last few decades, this area has been repurposed and redeveloped, and is now a trendy area with high-end shops, bars, restaurants, galleries, and condominiums. The students enjoyed exploring the area (what a great place to take photos!). On the way back, students went into the St. Lawrence Market and browsed the vendors selling food and other products.
