Based on an aerial view of the renowned mid-Toronto landmark, come on a philatelic tour of Mount Pleasant Cemetery Exhibit.

Starting at the top with the Neilson (of chocolate fame) monument, then winding its way down the graveyard routes, stopping and learning about famous (and not so famous) dead people. Ending at the bottom of the map at Maple Leafs tycoon, Steve Stavros’ statuesque resting place.

Leon Matthys curates a slide show and journeys through the famous graveyard, telling Necro-philatelic tales of some of its eternal residents.  

It's creation is also covered: featuring genealogical and archive searches, and how to accumulate the right material.

All welcome!
