Father initiates son

Here’s a random pair of photographs from the March 11 1930 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:

For the heck of it, I traced the Stevensons, father and son, in the Toronto city directories.

  • In 1930, they were living together at 350 St. Clair Avenue West. Son George was working as a clerk at National Trust, and father Thomas A. was a manager at Associated Printers.
  • In 1935, George was still at National Trust but was now living on his own at 118 Redpath Avenue. Thomas was now vice-president and manager of Associated Printers, and had moved west to an apartment at 482 St. Clair West.
  • By 1940, Thomas A. had become president and general manager of Associated Printers, and George D. was holding steady as a clerk at National Trust. Both were now living in North Toronto: Thomas was at 481 Duplex, and George was now at 560 Roselawn.
  • In 1945, George D. was still a clerk at National Trust, and was at 104 Chudleigh Avenue. By now, sadly, Thomas A. had passed on – his widow, Ella M., still resided at 481 Duplex.
  • In 1950, George D. was still with National Trust, at the same address. He was still there in 1953. Sadly, he too had passed away by 1955, as his widow, Lillian, was listed at 104 Chudleigh.
