- This modern photograph shows Alvah Townsend's Georgian mansion, now 597 Mount Pleasant Road, as it was in 1998/99. Townsend built this mansion in 1848 after amassing considerable wealth in the carriage making business. The house was built by the same builders as Cooke's "Brucefield" mansion; Townsend was reportedly annoyed by the house's straight staircase, as he had requested a winding staircase in the same style as Brucefield's. The front porch may have been a later addition. The house was later owned by Dr. Duncan Marquis.
This photograph was taken by Michael O'Byrne.
