Kildare Road – c. 1910

Another old photo from the Library Of Congress collection. Today’s photo is looking south on Kildare towards today’s Willistead Park. Rarely enough, everything here is still standing. The photo is mislabelled as “Mr. Kilgore’s residence, Delvonshire Road, Walkerville, Ont.”

The photo does show the Ridout B. Parson home at 873 Kildare, designed by Albert Kahn in 1906

Also the designated Stephen A. Griggs at 889 Kildare. This one was also designed by Albert Kahn, was built in 1908.

Interestingly enough, in this shot of the sidewalk you can see the slab with the street name. Some of these fragments still exist today.

Here’s the same view today. The trees are a little bigger now.
