Exploring photos: Regent and Prideaux streets

This 1940s painting shows the corner of Regent and Prideaux streets. As seen in the picture, Regent Street continues past Front and up the hill at Queen’s Royal Park to view Lake Ontario. The yellow house behind the huge maple trees is made of brick and actually is still there. At the time of the painting a family named Leith lived in this house. The farthest building at one time was the Munroe blacksmith’s shop. For many years the building was vacant and dilapidated and was a playground for us kids. Today a fairly new house has been built at this location.
