The Beach's source for news since 1972

Deja Views

This house on Balsam Avenue is an original beach cottage. It was built in 1897, and the Thomas family lived here from 1936 to 1981. A teenaged Sonya Thomas (now Munro) received a camera as a gift and took many photos of her surroundings, including this image, taken in the early 1940s. Sonya said during winter months, she and her friends would go ice-skating on what is now the parking lot of the Balmy Beach Club. Thanks to Sonya for sharing this wonderful photograph. Do you have a photo you’d like to share? Call me at 416-691-4774.
