For five decades, Kasyn painted Toronto's neighbourhoods, focusing on an older, gentler Toronto before the renovators moved in. He was drawn to the back lanes, where the real life of the houses was evident. His affection for the city's architecture was palpable, and he amassed a library of over 6,000 slides, capturing every street and lane in Toronto.
