    Hi There

    Currently, neither the Wriggley buildings 235 and 245 Carlaw are listed as heritage. Same with the bridge at Gerrard and Carlaw. I believe these buildings/infrastructure tell an important story and should be deemed heritage. Has anyone from the society had any discussion with Heritage Preservation Services, City of Toronto?

    • Hello Evelyn,

      Thank you for your comment. You are right about the Wrigley Buildings and the bridge. Very few Leslieville buildings or structures are listed as heritage. I will bring your concerns to our small committee which is working on this issue. We are drawing up a list of heritage candidates. You might also want to let your City Councillor know as the Councillor has people working on this separately from the Leslieville Historical Society.

      Regards,
      Joanne Doucette

      • As a follow up, I met Friday with the person who handles plaques for Heritage Toronto and discussed plaques for the Wrigley Building and more on Carlaw. Joanne

      • Hello Joanne,
        I manage the photo archives at the Canadian War Museum and I saw the post you left on our website regarding a photo you have that was taken by G. R. Lancefield (copyright 1915). I have some information about Lancefield that I’d like to share with you so I’m leaving you my email address in the hopes that we can correspond: Maggie.arbour@warmuseum.ca . Thank you!
