  History of Kensington Market
St. Stephen-In-The-Fields Anglican Church in Kensington Market once had one of the largest congregations in Toronto. Kensington has for years made a major contribution to the lives of people from Christian, Jewish and most recently the Buddhist faiths. It is, and continues to be, a place where people from all over the world have made their first home in the new country. It is a place where, for generations, an attitude of racial and ethnic harmony has thrived, with the succession of European Jews, Hungarians, Italians, Ukrainians, Portuguese, Asians, Caribbean people and other groups. Many call Kensington mini-Toronto because of its ethnic diversity. Photo of Baldwin Street in 1922, now complete with motorized trucks.
