Garden City was one of the early suburbs in the former Cornwall Township that became a Cornwall neighbourhood on January 1, 1957 when the City annexed much of the Township. The name Garden City no longer appears on Cornwall maps.
Many people know of or have heard of Garden City. Some have said that it was basically everything north of (the other/wrong side of) the Glebe tracks in the Cumberland Street area. One said that he’d always been told that it was south of there, in the area around Woodlawn Cemetery on Cumberland. Some of the 1950 era maps show it, in modern terms, as the area running from Notre Dame Street (formerly Lass Street) to Cumberland Street and from 12th St W to 14th St W. This map shows the sub-division and surrounding area. Was it where you thought it was?
As an aside, notice Roosevelt Street a bit north of Garden City; today it is named Bedford Street to align with the adjacent street in the Square Mile.
