This house was for sale off and on since 2011 and was torn down during the week of February 10-14, 2014. Here is what this simple unimproved cottage looked like in August 2011:
A friend who lived nearby took a photo of the rear of the house in August 2013. The two apple trees produced their last apples.
Or maybe not...the trees were dug up just before the demolition by a large truck-mounted tree spade and taken away to a new home somewhere. Or will they be returned to the back yard at 3760 West 17th Avenue?
Now a trip down memory lane!
Knob and tube wiring on a solid wood construction.
Monday was laundry day with this ample sink.
Tuesday was ironing day with the ironing board conveniently folding down from the wall in the kitchen.
These bathroom tiles lasted a long time.
A wee leaded glass window (sorry it was night when this was photographed), a picture rail, and cove ceiling.Thank you to yet another neighbour for taking these interior shots, just prior to the demolition. Think about all the materials that went to the landfill.
