First Hunt at Eaton Hall in King Township

                                                                                                                         Photo: City of Toronto Archives
Here is a photo I had not seen before this week.   I spotted it while stumbling about online at Google Photos.   It is described as picturing the first 'Hunt' at the newly constructed Eaton Hall in King Township.   There is no date and the riders are unidentified.   Meanwhile, below, is a photo that appeared in this blogsite back in April of this year.   It also seems to be a City of Toronto Archives photo and shows the Toronto Hunt Club amassed near the Eaton's first estate home, Villa Fiori, on their country property just north of King City.
Please comment if you wish.
