79th Annual Report

In the 79 years since Toronto City Mission was established, Toronto had grown to over a million residents, transportation moved from horse drawn vehicles to modern cars, electricity was invented... "but one thing that has never changed has been the heartache and need of humanity, and for this, and this alone, The Toronto City Mission has offered itself, not to work where the pastures look temptingly green but in the difficult places, among those who lives are blighted because of the conditions under which they are forced to live."
