Interesting to see the Torbrick neighbourhood when it was still a quarry--and to be reminded of how the present Greenwood Towers seniors' home on the Danforth straddles the wye that leads to the Greenwood yards...

Armstrong, Robert R., house, 91 Sumach St., east side, north of Queen St. E. 1890 TPL
View attachment 235671
Ok, this has been bothering me for two weeks....according to Google Streetview this is half of a semidetached building. The neighbours on both sides of the street are all the same build as the current house, see attachment. However, sure the gingerbread is gone and now there is a front porch, but the bay windows are rectangular, not bowed, the decorative brickwork in the facade is not there...it just doesn’t add up.

Yes I agree, it's somewhat puzzling isn't it LPCI?
Three possible answers:
- the old home has been completely replaced by a new semi
- it was extensively renovated after the attachment (number 93) was added
- the house numbering system has been altered
