In October of 2019, I had the privilege of giving a talk about the Prices at a monthly meeting of the Beach and East Toronto Historical Society (TBETHS).
The room, at the Beaches Branch of the Toronto Public Library, was filled to capacity and the audience seemed to like what I had to say.
The thrust of the presentation was how four men, Joe Price (my great grandfather), his two sons Leslie and Earl (the “Price Brothers”), and their colleague, Harry Stevens, built well over 200 houses in the Beach in the first three decades of the twentieth century. In doing so, they had a lasting and positive impact on the district.

One of the most satisfying aspects of the evening was the opportunity to meet, for the first time, a double handful of my Price cousins and their families. We took a once-in-a-lifetime group photo that night.
