Notes

Lot 20, Con. 2 east. Looking east on Finch Avenue East from north end of Page Street with horseback riders from the Edwin Ness stables in foreground. The Eglinton Hunt Club barn and a small subdivision - built on land that belonged to Donald Springer - are visible in the left background. Edwin Ness purchased a fifty acre property on Lot 20, Con. 2 east in 1950, opening a riding school and stable. It remained open into the early 1960s, after which it was demolished to make way for housing developments. (see also TC 355)
