Scope and Content

This project series documents the design of the residence of J.D. Crashley at 3 Old George Place in Toronto, Ontario from 1956-1965. The office identified the project number as 5614.

This project consisted of the design for a T-shaped, one storey home for J.D. Crashley, who was a prominent Toronto entrepreneur and president of the Art Gallery of Ontario in the 1970s. Only the garage was visible from the street, with one of the stems of the T extending over into the adjacent ravine, creating two levels to the residence. The exterior of the residence was largely field stone with brick on some walls. The construction of this home is recorded under a separate project number, assigned by the office (see project series AP018.S1.1959.PR03 in this fonds). Today, the house enjoys special heritage status in Ontario, although the highly controversial addition of a second floor was recently completed.

The project is recorded through drawings dating from approximately 1956-1959. The majority of these drawings are original design drawings.
