Favourite Parkdale House/Now

This is one of my favourite houses in Parkdale. Located on O'Hara it appears to be quite original including the double hung windows. There are very few wood frame houses left in Toronto and with it's close proximity to the original O'Hara estate it's possible that this was built for a family member of Colonel Walter O'Hara in the 1860's or so.
O'Hara's estate was called West Lodge and was situated north of Queen on what is now West Lodge Avenue. The house was demolished by the City of Toronto (then owners) in 1959.
