Willibrord Park, view from corner of 1st avenue and Bannantyne, City Hall in background.
Centre Communautaire Marcel Giroux across the street form the park at the corner of Willibrord and Bannantyne and was formerly a car dealer.
This vacant lot to the left of the Centre Communautairte Marcel Giroux was possibly where Buz Beurling lived in early 40s. Lovel's directory shows a Beurling family that lived there and was the only Beurling family listed so it is quite feasable. There was also a Beurling family that lived on Church avenue prior to this listing. This would have to be confirmed.
I took these photos on Saurday morning with parents bringing their kids to play. The park was modernized with pavement bricks on the ground and beautifull landscaping, a far cry compared to the early forties when is used to go there with my friends regularly and play in the summer as well as the winter where there was a skating rink wich had a wooden shack with a wood burning stove so typical in those days and where we could warm up and change our skates. Maybe I will find an old photo in the Guardian of this park.
