GOODERHAM3 The neighbouring James Cooper Mansion <PHOTO ABOVE> went through a similar procedure.

GOODHERHAM5The large structure behind, once part of a Clarion Hotel and former home to BOOTS, one of the city’s largest gay dance halls, will be demolished.

GOODERHAM6While ERNEST HEMINGWAY worked as a reporter for the Toronto Star, he made his home here, at 592 Sherbourne Street, south of Bloor Street East. The book ‘Ernest Hemingway Dateline: Toronto (1920-24)’ contains all 172 pieces that Hemingway wrote for the Star.
