Ready to go: The 98-year-old James Crowther home at 280 Bloor St. W. has been raised about 1.2 metres so wheels can be put under it. Over the next month it will be moved about 76 metres (250 feet) at a cost of $500;000 to make way for new buildings. Historians and Annex residents battled to save the home; which will be relocated on St. George St. Open in full size
