    Shows the approximate locations of various VV addresses on Dundas St. The circle at Mill and Queen Streets - one of these corners was the Thomas J. Clarke Barrel & Stave Co. Another circle shows the Roman Catholic church and first burial place of (at least) Flora VV before the cemetery was moved in the 1930's.

    See the post-1880 list of VV addresses here.
