72 Homewood, 1973

When the developers of L’Esprit condo (15 Maitland Place + 60 Homewood) were gathering the land, the owners of the houses just to the right (north) of this house would not sell. They (#’s 74 and 76) still remain. The developers were able to buy #72 and, below, they owned the corner lot.

 

78 Homewood, 1973

 

In 1988, # 72 was moved to the corner and became # 78. Two additional houses were built onto the back, facing Maitland Place.
