Old Roncesvalles

Jason Crowtz, a volunteer with the Revue Cinema, was doing some historical research on the Revue and found this page from an old edition of the Toronto World from about 1923. I like it: it shows us that our neighbourhood spirit and co-operation is nothing new!

Of particular note is the ad for W.R. Willard, Barrister and Solicitor (115 Roncesvalles). Opening in 1915, this business ranks with the Revue Cinema as among the oldest businesses on our street.

    Fascinating. I’m pretty sure that the the pavement just outside of Scooter Girl’s front door has one of those company names embedded in it.
