Since its inception, The Patch Works has been steadily compiling a variety of audio-visual media in an effort to help visitors better understand the history of Cabbagetown. This section of our website will never be fully completed, since we discover or generate new multimedia items almost every day that shed light on this neighborhood’s unique past. Some of the content in this section has been around for generations (e.g.: historic photos); some is original content that has been captured by The Patch Works (e.g.: video interviews).
As opposed to the digital images of three-dimensional objects — such as artifacts, artwork, and documents — everything in this section replicates its original form (N.B.: photographs are the result of copying an original image; we consider an unaltered scan of a photo a sufficient representation of the original form).
We have organized our multimedia galleries into the following three categories:
To view the digitized versions of our collection of historic artifacts, artwork, and documents (and other three-dimensional objects), please visit our Exhibits section of the site. For audio-visual media showing contemporary activities in Cabbagetown, please visit our Community section.
