C. H. Lavender was a confectionery store located on Kingston Road just west of Balsam Avenue. Beth Lavender from Pickering was so kind to share this photograph of her family and their former business. The image, taken sometime in the mid 1920s, depicts her grandmother Catharine standing in front of the door in white, Beth’s father Frederick John Lavender (the little boy in the doorway), and her Aunt Lucy, standing behind Frederick. The store closed in the 1930s and later became the A to Z Shoe Store. Today it’s the King’s Diner, an excellent establishment, especially for breakfast. Do you have a photo you’d like to share? Please call me at 416 390 2527.
