The Elliot House Hotel located on the south east corner.
Destroyed by fire in 1961.
Looking south down Church, the Elliot House is on the left.
A current view of the same corner.

Fire seems to be the prerequisite to development far too often. consider the fire at the sanctuary Lofts in a historic church on Dufferin. the units had not been selling well. After the fire the developers have more cash and more options. Who advocates for these historic buildings. Read about Sanctuary Lofts: http://pvhs.info/?p=1267

Greg, do you have anything on fires in Parkdale in particular and fires in historical buildings as a theme? You work is wonderful.
