    Excerpt from Tales of North Toronto, Vol. 2

    What happened to this ancient lake? As the ice commenced to melt in the St. Lawrence Valley the water of Lake Iroquois gradually reached out and cleared a passage to the sea. This new channel reduced the level of the water. It gradually fell to a point where it was below the entrance to the Hudson Valley, and the St. Lawrence route continued as the only outlet to the sea. As the water or Lake Iroquois fell, the water of what is now Lake Erie commenced to spill over the escarpment at Queenston, and Niagara Falls was born. The waters of Lake Iroquois levelled off and the new level is the present Lake Ontario.

    Where there any human beings here at that time? There is some evidence to suggest that there were. North Toronto, as far as the author is aware, has not produced any direct evidence in support of such a theory. The Don Valley has. Some years ago, the late Professor Coleman, one of the greatest geologists that the Empire has evolved, received a telephone call from one of the foremen at the Don Valley Brick Works. The call suggested that the professor leave his desk and hurry out to the yards.

    Something had come'to light as a result of blasting. When Professor Cole man arrived he was directed to the remains of a charcoal fire with remains of animal bones in the immediate vicinity. The blasting powder had lifted the overburden and exposed a bit of strata that had once been level ground. The remains of the fire and the meal that had been cooked upon it had come to View. The discovery was carefully removed and is now on display in the Royal Ontario Museum. Professor Coleman estimated that the fire had been used twenty thousand' years ago. Were these hunters from the Mound Builders or from some unknown tribe who preceded them? No one knows today. Only human beings can light a fire and cook a meal upon it. This interesting relic is mute evidence that human beings of some kind roamed about what is now North Toronto many thousands of years ago.
