The August 1 1931 edition of the Toronto Daily Star has been a rich source of material! Here’s the Personals section from that paper:


I feel sorry for Mr. J. Beaver of 62 Winchester Street, who felt compelled to take out a personals ad with his name in large letters. The 1931 and 1932 Toronto city directories list Harry Beaver at that address; he was a plasterer. J. Beaver might have been his son. 62 Winchester is now a nice old house in Cabbagetown.

I also looked up Hiram Thomas Bush in the 1931 and 1932 directories and did not find him, so they would not have been of help to Wright at 181 Hudson Drive. The Streets section of the 1931 directory lists Wilmot G. Clarke as the resident at that address, but the Names section indicates that there was a Dorothy Wright also living there. Perhaps she placed the ad. 181 Hudson Drive still stands.
