One lad may die

While I’m on the subject of fatal crashes, here was a description of a potentially fatal crash as reported in the August 18 1928 edition of the Toronto Daily Star.

I was morbidly curious as to whether the two young men survived, so I looked them up in the Toronto city directories. The 1928 and 1929 directories do not list either Stanley Brown or Thomas Johnson at 438 King St. West – a gentleman by the name of George E. Small was listed as living there both years. Since Mr. Brown and Mr. Johnson have such common names, I couldn’t trace them any further.
