  1. Yes, it was built by brick manufacturer Thomas Sawden and displays his products in the house itself. The white (yellow) brick was much more expensive than the red brick in Toronto so this house would have stood out. He had a brickyard near by. Sawden Avenue is named for him.

    1. Thank you! I was previously told that this house was built next to the ex-wife or wife’s house of the builder but I can see I was wrong. I totally did not catch the brick colour thank you foor pointing it out.

      1. Actually, he built this house for his first wife who passed away. He built another house for his second wife. Both are masterworks of brickmaking. The second house is two doors east of the yellow brick house and is quite different, being more bungalow style.
