OTHER IDENTIFICATION
Notes:

Dating to 1879, 48 and 54 Harbord Street were some of the first houses built on Harbord Street and are some of the oldest extant houses on Harbord Street. The block of homes at 44-56 Harbord Street, Toronto are also the only surviving 19th century homes on Harbord Street east of Spadina Avenue.

 

Matthew James O’Toole (48 Harbord Street): Matthew James O’Toole was the first resident of 48 Harbord Street, residing at the property between 1879 and 1883. Matthew James O’Toole was a cabinetmaker. Subsequently, Michael J. O’Toole resided at the property between 1889 and 1891. Michael J. O’Toole was a foreman and piano maker at Mason & Risch. Of further note: a Charles O’Toole is listed as operating a piano selling business in the late 1890s, based at 83 King Street West, Toronto – though it is unclear at present if Charles O’Toole is a relative of Matthew James O’Toole and Michael J. O’Toole.
