Notes
The Guild Inn was located in Scarborough, Ontario. The proprietors, Rosa and Spencer Clark, formed the Guild of All Arts at the Inn. In return for room and board artists would share their art and knowledge with the Guild and its visitors (Miedema, Gary. The Guild Inn. heritagetoronto.org/the-guild-inn/, August 5, 2014).

Marjorie Georgina Ruddy (1908-1980) was a prominent Whitby photographer and the only commercial photographer in Whitby during the 1930s and 1940s. Marjorie was the official photographer for the Whitby Police Department starting in the 1930s and as a result took many photographs of car accidents, fingerprints and crime scenes. (Station Gallery. Whitby Through the Lens Photographs by Marjorie G. Ruddy, 1935-1948. Whitby: Station Gallery, 2010.)
