Michael McClelland, Tatum Taylor and I are working on a sequel of sorts to The Ward, tentatively entitled, The Ward Uncovered: The Archeology of Everyday Life - a detailed look at the remarkable archeological dig in 2015-2016 on the Centre Ave parking lot, now destined to be the new Toronto courthouse. One of the foundations excavated was a Centre Ave foundry that became a synagogue (Shaarei Tzedec, 1902 to mid 1930s). After the synagogue relocated to Markham Street, the building was purchased by a furniture retailer called Pearl's. I'm looking for any information or recollections about Pearl's. Please contact me, John Lorinc, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you remember the store or anything related to it.
