Thank you, Carol Semple for sending me this incredible image from 1954.

Carol’s father, John Partington, owned and operated Partington Carpets, It was located on Queen Street East in the Beach, not far from the firehall and across the street.

Carol thinks that the car was her dad’s, and what a classic!

We’re not 100 per cent sure who took the photo but believe it was probably John Partington.

The site is now home to The Sweet Oven Toronto at 1911 Queen St. E.

Say, do you have old photos of businesses that are no more? Please contact me at gdvandyke61@gmail.com
