Reveille Mission

The February 10 1926 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained an article on the Reveille Mission, which was serving 400 free meals to destitute people in the city.


I am fascinated by the idea of someone introducing himself as The Stranger. Who was this mysterious Stranger, and why did he not give his real name? A Google search for “Reveille Mission” turned up nothing, so I guess I will never know.

The Reveille Mission existed at 383 Queen West until 1937. In 1938, it moved to 2184 Dundas Street West, where it existed until sometime between 1945 and 1947.
