4, 6 and 8 Victor Avenue formerly known as only 8 Victor Avenue


The was once one beautiful house that was torn down to build these prison housing units.

When the houses were built we were shown drawings of lovely Victorian homes and this is what they allowed to go up. They are the ugliest homes on the street and I am surprised a city that dedicated to its heritage allowed them to be built.

48/50 used to be as unattractive until they were refaced a few years ago.

In 1911
These people lived in the house that was torn down in the early 1980’s
