This City of Toronto Archives photograph, above, depicts a house on Wheeler Avenue, just down the hill from Juniper Avenue. It was taken in the summer of 1925.

Notice that the road was not paved. With our winters, I fully comprehend the whole idea of a “mudroom” which you can see as an addition to the house when I recently photographed it.

Do you have an old photograph of your house you’d like to share with our readership? why not contact me at: gdvandyke61@gmail.com
