Bar vest, track arrest

Here’s a small article from the June 4 1928 edition of the Toronto Daily Star about a man who was practicing his own form of entrepreneurship.


I tried to trace John Cahill in the Toronto city directories, but there was no one by that name on Simcoe Street in either of the 1932 and 1933 directories.

Thorncliffe Park Raceway existed from 1917 until 1953. The racetrack was demolished in 1954; housing developments and a shopping centre exist in that location now.
