At one end of Monteith is the summertime patio of Church Street’s Smith Restaurant.
At the other end – the birthplace of Canadian media baron ROY THOMSON (Lord Thomson of Fleet). Thomson was born at #32 on June 5, 1894 to Herbert Thomson (a barber at the Grosvenor Hotel) and Alice Coombs. These days the house is worth well over a million dollars.
