Sir Henry Pellett's King City cattle farm
I happened across this photo while surfing the web last week. I saw it and other photos, pictured below, on a a City of Toronto Archives/Wikipedia website. I had never seen them before but I was aware of Sir Henry Pellett's interest in farming and hunting. Sir Henry, of Casa Loma fame, often invited guests to hunt deer over the hundreds of acres of land he owned just north of King City. In the early 1900s it was known as Wychwood. The land is now home to Marylake Augustinian Monastery and Shrine, and Villa Nova College.
