Parkdale House Demolition 1910

An advert from 1910 seeking someone to knock down a few houses in Parkdale for the Grand Trunk Railroad.
Empress and Dunn highlighted.
The demolition of four houses in 1911 was nothing compared to the wholesale destruction of South Parkdale in the late 1950's. The Gardiner Expressway was coming and this community was in the way!!
The red box indicates where my Grandparents' house was.
