Deja Views: Remembering the Eastbourne House at Dawes and Danforth

This building was once called the Eastbourne House. In its hey day it had a separate entrance for women and men (I guess we didn’t get along too well back then…wait a minute?).

The location is Danforth Avenue and Dawes Road, southeast corner. The photo was taken in 1954.

Do you have an old photo you’d like to share with our readership?
