  4. 1019 would be the brown building on left of Gilford Street in the postcard view.
    I lived in top floor there in 1968-69 with my sister and mother.
    Mom was searching for someplace cheap and settled on that apartment because of the eight-sided living room. It had two tiny bedrooms and a nice balcony in back. In our time it was covered in grey stucco. Sadly the house with its eight-sided rooms is long gone. https://www.flickr.com/photos/canadagood/3098767823/

    • Thank you for your message. I have added some information to the page on 1019 Gilford Street, including a reference to your photograph of the house in 1971. Thanks, as well, for your description of the interior. These days it is rare to hear from someone who actually lived in one of the houses in the West End.
