Other occupants: 152 Dundas Street East was later home to Dr. Joachim William Guinane and his practice between 1893 and 1939/1940. Dr. Guinane died around 1939 or 1940. His widow resided here until the mid-1940s. 152 Dundas Street East was later home to several iterations of the Mutual Street Deli for 60 years (1956/1957 - 2017). 

 

154 Dundas Street East was home to William Henry Orr between 1879 and 1889.
