The Guild Inn was located in Scarborough, Ontario. The proprietors, Rosa and Spencer Clark, formed the Guild of All Arts at the Inn.

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.
