Mary and I are very happy that the lane running behind our apartment on Brunswick Avenue has been named for David! The Harbord Village Residents' Association has been honouring notable Annex residents this way, and our downstairs neighbour Jan Filips Muszynski suggested that our lane be named for David. This winter the signs appeared, and the lane became searchable on Google Maps. David lived in the apartment on Brunswick for over thirty years, and when he worked he often sat facing the lane, so it really is an apt tribute. David would have turned 75 this January. To mark the day, Mary and I invited some friends over for pie -- which was David's favourite dessert. After pie, we put our coats on and I took some photos of friends gathered around the sign. (I'll post one below.) On June 22nd, there will be an official City of Toronto ceremony to christen "David French Lane." I hope you can join us! More details will follow.
