Historic Intersections of Mississauga

in

We have all done it: waited. Waiting at intersections, stuck in traffic, waiting for the lights to change or traffic to move. Caught up in the wait, we perhaps can be forgiven if we do not realize our physical connections to the past. Layers in time. People have travelled our roads and crossed our intersections for generations. Many of our routes of travel are over 200 years old.
