This small street is in the historic "Corktown" neighbourhood near downtown Toronto. The area is so named for early Irish settlers, who had, within walking distance, work at Gooderham & Worts distillery, schools, a tavern, and two churches: Little Trinity Anglican and St. Paul's Roman Catholic, pictured here.
Today Trefann is a model of blending the old with the new. Victorian row houses line one side of the street and reproductions the other: only a discerning eye can tell the difference.
