    What struck me about this photo was the man in the white shirt holding his hands up over his eyes – to block the sun? He looks very modern and out of place with his surroundings – carriage and horses etc. as if he is visiting from a more modern time and place to have a look around.
    Love your website – have it bookmarked. Thanks for your wonderful photos & comments.
    I am interested in Toronto social history & buildings.
    My grandma, born 1880, lived at 16 Verral Ave (Carlaw – Queen E). She was part of the Russell family who were Irish brickmakers in Leslieville. John E Russell, who was a well-known figure in Toronto – owned a fleet of barges etc. was her brother. The Verral Ave house is constructed of those glorious red/orange Russell bricks & though not owned by the R family now, is still there.
    Thanks, Lynne Brady
