I’m very grateful to Chris Ambidge, who has been an enthusiastic reader of this blog, for his interest and for his leads.
Two tidbits that he’s recently passed along.
This 1946 photo of St. John the Evanglist, Portland Street (the Garrison Church). I have it already in my blog, but it is a photograph of a photograph included in the historical display in the park where the church was located. This is a much clearer version and, as Chris points out, the signs in the background are mostly readable.
Chris also pointed me to existence of St. Luke Lane, located near Bay & Wellesley, where St. Luke’s Bay Street sat. The lineway name is the only lasting pointer to the existence of St. Luke’s, which was located at Bay & St. Joseph Streets until 1930.
I’m always grateful for leads like this. Thanks, Chris!
