In a recent post, I’ve mentioned:
“Bernice Law has described for me, in a recent interview, how the configuration of the land in the area of what is now Marie Curtis Park has changed since the 1930s. The additional details from David Webster are very valuable.”
Robert Lansdale writes:
“I did come across your comment, as per above. I was wondering, in your recent interviews have you found anyone with photos of the Island Road and Etobicoke Flats between the 1920’s and 1955? I have almost no info nor photos of the houses north of the Lake Promenade extension, around Island Rd (other than the photos my Dad took for the Telegram and Toronto Star).”
I have not scanned any such photos in the course of my interviews. I will check back with some of my past interview subjects, whose photos I have not yet scanned.
I will keep in mind that Robert Lansdale seeks such photos for his historical research work. His father is Bob Lansdale. Both Bob Lansdale and Robert Lansdale have shared great photos and information with us in recent years.
If you know of such photos from the 1920s to 1955, related to the Island Road and Etobicoke Flats, please contact me through the Preserved Stories website.
