This submitted photograph shows siblings Livia and Leon Thoeny on the corner of Nursewood and Queen streets in 1952, when they were teens. The two white condo buildings behind them were designed by their father, Victor. The one in the centre is where Livia still lives today. In the early 1950s, 33 Estonian families took up residence in the two buildings and for the purpose of affordability, each had a share of the title, a precursor to the condo concept commonly used today.
Thanks to Livia for sharing this wonderful photograph. Do you have an old photo you'd like to share? Call me at 416-691-4774.
