Chinatown Duplex

This duplex on Huron Street north of Sullivan retains much of it's original charm and detail.
Similar to the old house on Peter Street seen here.


  1. Greg - I think you mean north of Sullivan St.
    My son Dylan just moved into a shared floor on D'Arcy Ave.
    Where do I find the history of a house ?

  2. You are correct.
    Searching a history of a house requires some physical legwork.The first step is a visit to the basement of City Hall (new) to have a look through their collection of records including"
    Tax assessments
    City directories
    Goad's Fire Insurance Maps
    Old phone books.
    The information available on line is quite limited.
    I think I'll do a piece on this very subject.
