- When photographed on December 29, 1971, "Mr. Liptay" owned the farmhouse which was estimated to have been built in 1875.
It is likely that Mr. Liptay was connected with the Richview Golf and Country Club.
The golf course, on the east side of today's Bronte Road, north of Upper Middle Road, was founded in 1965 by Ed Liptay Sr. He had previously farmed the land for four years, being the fourth owner of the land. The Club used one of the old farm barns as the pro shop with locker room, and the clubhouse was in an old farmhouse. The golf course was a par-67, 5,080 yard course. In 2004, the course was changed to a residential development.
We were able to find the following Liptay men around the time of these photographs: John Joseph Liptay who on the 1963 voter's list lived at R.R. 1, a farmer ; Edward John Liptay in the 1968 Census lived with his wife, Rose, on Third Line, his occupation "Manager" ; Steve Liptay who in the 1969 Might's Toronto City Directory lived on Bloor St. West (Islington) is connected.
The legal location description of this address is: Part Lot 10, Concession 1, South of Dundas Street; Part 3 20R12010, Oakville. This is east of Eighth Line, just south of today's Glenashton Drive.
The house is gone, the address now a modern, subdivision house.

- In 1971-1972, Parks Canada photographed those buildings that were 100 or more years old. This Canadian Inventory of Heritage Buildings was a Centennial Project.
The Trafalgar Township Historical Society has worked with Parks Canada and Library and Archives Canada to find these photographs in the area of Trafalgar Township and the city of Oakville, Ontario. The collection will grow as we have time to collect and prepare the images.
The TTHS is also sending the images to the Town of Oakville Heritage Planners to increase local availability and to ensure local preservation.
Each TTHS internet record will show the back of the identifying information card first. This is to prevent any errors in reading the handwritten address held up on a clipboard for each address - we have noted that sometimes the address number is illegible or incorrect.
All TTHS records in this collection can be found in one step by clicking on the "Groups" link on the right of your screen, "Parks Canada. Canadian Inventory of Heritage Buildings, 1970-1972. Trafalgar Township & Oakville."
