Interior, St Matthews Anglican Church, First Ave., Toronto, circa 1939
St Matthews Anglican Church, First Ave, Toronto, early 1920s — A play, Little Pink Lady, in the church. I. Midely.
The Junior Auxiliary of the Anglican Church was an organization somewhat similar to the Girl Guides or Canadian Girls in Training (CGIT), but with an emphasis on Anglican values.
These are posted here because young girls from Leslieville took part in this organization and the play, including the Tolchards.
