Music On Yonge Celebrating 70 Years of Sam's
This web project brings together the history and photographs that Ryerson has collected over the last several years and assembles it in one place for the public to enjoy. Some material is being published for the first time.
We celebrate the legacy of Sam the Record Man and all of the other venues along Yonge Street in downtown Toronto that have had an impact on the music scene in the city and in Canada, from retailers such as A&A Records to live music venues such as the Edison Hotel.
If you have your own memories of Sam’s, we invite you to go to our Memories section and tell us your stories.
Let the music play on.
