Exploring Photos with the NOTL Museum: Red brick home
2006014006-2

This watercolour was painted by landscape artist George R. Bruenech. It features a red brick home with a figure of a woman seated on the porch. The house was formerly located in the hollow between Byron and Ricardo streets. This is the house of William Milloy, who ran the City of Toronto steamer following the death of his father Duncan Milloy in 1871. William was also known for taking over his father’s Oban House, adding a second storey and converting it into the Oban Inn in 1895.
