Centre Island Association. (1951) The Ferryboat Follies, 4th ed. Toronto Island, ON
I am happy to join with the members of the Board of Control and City Council in extending every good wish to “The Ferryboat Follies Foundation” for the success of its Annual Show in Centre Island Clubhouse, the proceeds of which are used for the community programme of recreation for youth and children on Centre Island.
This is a worthy, voluntary citizen effort which, while presenting most enjoyable entertainment, contributes, as well, to constructive, recreational activities on the Island.
The members of the Civic Administration pay tribute to the officials of the “Ferryboat Follies” for their sponsorship of this public-spirited endeavour and express the hope that it will meet with every success.
H. E. McCALLUM
Mayor, City of Toronto.

Welcome! Watch your step… site under construction.
Plans are slowly forming to organize a formal web-based archive of Toronto Island History. Eric Zhelka is coordinating this archival effort, occasionally assisted by Eric Light, still inspired by the late Edward (Ted) English, and gratefully supported by former and current Toronto Islanders who gather on the TorontoIslandConnections Groups.io Group. If interested in any way, please fill in our Survey as we gauge involvement to see how the project should continue.
