An Attempt to Give Credit Where It’s Due
I’ve now had the privilege of giving two talks, for the Beach & East Toronto Historical Society, about the Price Brothers and their impact on the development of the Beach. One of the things that most struck me, in preparing for those talks, was the important but virtually forgotten role of Harry Stevens.
On July 2, 1928, the Toronto Globe published a two-and-a-half-page spread about the hundreds of handsome new houses that the Price Brothers were building in the Beach. Fawning articles were accompanied by ad after ad placed by the company’s suppliers.
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).
