Handsome Georgian style

Here’s a drawing of a luxury home about to be built in Rosedale, as seen in the May 16 1930 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:

I traced the house in the Toronto city directories:

  • It took over a year to build, as the house was not listed until the 1932 directory, with Mrs. Jean Larkin as the owner.
  • Sadly, Mrs. Larkin did not get to enjoy the house for very long, as the 1935 directory lists its owner as Aileen Larkin, who was presumably Mrs. Larkin’s daughter.
  • The younger Ms. Larkin is listed at this address in 1940, but not in 1945.

The house still stands.
