Naming "Ropewalk Lane"

Did you know the long block east of Lansdowne Avenue between Bloor and College may be the result of an historic “ropewalk”? Identified by resident's research on municipal maps from the 1860s, the ropewalk was where long strands of material were laid out before being twisted together into rope.

To commemorate this history, residents are petitioning to name the laneway between Lansdowne Ave and St. Clarens Ave "Ropewalk Lane." Please call my office at 416-392-7012 for more information.
