“I see”, said the blind man …

Carpenters in 1909
by P H Figary of Toronto

Toronto. — as he picked up his hammer and saw … This old bromide was around when I was a kid. The photograph at left was taken by P (Philip) H Figary, 590 Yonge St, Toronto (west side of Yonge, a few doors above Wellesley. Click to see 590 Yonge St  today from Google Street View). The shot at left is from the TPL and shows  a collection of carpenters. It caught my eye because my mother was born in Toronto West/Junction in 1909 and her grandfather was a carpenter.

Remember, when you do your Canadian photographic research, the wealth of details we have here in our city archives, our schools and our library System. Just saying!
