Earlier this week, I wrote a short piece about the Andrew’s Manor Apartments at 896 Eglinton East, in Leaside. Today, I transcribed the apartment’s entry in the 1954 Might’s Directory and filled in any missing information from the subsequent year’s edition.

I have always been a sucker for the named telephone exchanges and this list is no exception.

1954
‘MO’ = “MOhawk”? ‘MA’ = “MAyfair”? I don’t know if I’d complain about having Allan Bell’s number: Hudson 8-5000.
