December/January’s question is Veronica Taylor.
“In the early 1800s, a road was commissioned to connect Toronto (then York) to Kingston and the settlements between. The road began on the east side of the Don River, and for obvious reasons was called Kingston Road. It was completed in 1817.
At that time, and for some time to come, Toronto’s eastern boundary was the Don River, and Queen Street East ended there.
In 1884, the city of Toronto annexed Riverdale, and the area east of the Don River all the way to Greenwood Avenue.
After that, the entire street (or concession line) was at last called Queen Street East.”
