This is the Harrison residence on the north east corner of Dixie Road and Dundas Street, Toronto Township, Peel County (present day City of Mississauga) taken about 1915. My great grandfather William Harrison and his family moved here about 1910 when he sold the 100 acres of land he owned in Toronto Gore Township. Here William operated a market garden growing fruits and vegetables. I think they lived here until the late 1920s. My great aunt Rita Harrison (Sister Mary Caroline) is peaking out the front window and her brother William (Bill) is standing at the front gate.
