When you're next in downtown West End spend some time with the newly installed local history signs along Boundary Street.

Inkahoots worked with the West End Making History Group for more than two years to produce the plaques. Tim Quinn, Philip Vanderzeil, Steve Capelin and Helen Abrahams researched, debated, consulted, wrote and rewrote 200 years of local history. The project presents the unique working-class, first peoples, multicultural, activist and creative West End stories that make us who we are today.
