The New Toronto War Memorial was designed as a fountain and dedicated in 1919 by the New Toronto Soldiers Comfort Association.  It was originally located on the south west corner of the Lake Shore Road and Eighth Street just outside the Brown Building in which the municipal offices were located.  Later it was moved to the local Royal Canadian Legion Branch.   Today it is located at 150 Eighth Street outside the Winston Spencer Churchill Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. John Arding is my great grandfather and I've been doing some researching on my family history. I will have to visit this one day.
