"What's the future ever done for me?"
I recently discovered that my Irish gr-gr-grandparents lived on Agnes Street for over 40 years, in the late 1800s - early 1900s. Had no idea of what the conditions were like!
I just found out the same thing. My Irish Great Great Grandparents lived at 10 Agnes st in and around 1889.
My grandmother Jennie/Zelda lived at 18 Agnes when she first arrived in Canada with her mom and sibs in 1913, remaining through 1915 perhaps longer. The Ward was notoriously impoverished, but now I can see why her baby brother died of bronchial pneumonia in Winter 1915. Family name DAVIDSON (Jewish from Poland). Parents Mendel/Max and Sara-Devora. Connections anyone?
Whoops - address was 118 Agnes St (or Lane).
