Greenwood Avenue’s history of bricks

Greenwood Avenue’s history is told in a Beach Metro News story by noted east end historian Gene Domagala • February 22, 2012

“We have in the East End a number of exceptional streets that are known for a variety of reasons. One of these is Greenwood Avenue… Greenwood is unique in that it probably had more brickyards than any other street in the city of Toronto and surrounding area…The Greenwood Avenue brickyards gave the Don Valley Brickworks quite a run for its money in the production of bricks from the 1860s to the 1920s.”
