The home at 2613 Lake Shore Blvd. W. was built in the Arts and Craft style in 1920 for William Calder Ingram, a Customs Official.

William Calder Ingram was the son of Charles and Penelope Ingram and born in Toronto in 1887.  His parents were born in Scotland and immigrated to Canada in 1882.

William married his first wife Annie Honan in 1907.  She died and he married his second wife Rosalie Collins in Niagara Falls, New York in 1912.   Rosalie's mother Elizabeth purchased the lot in 1919 for her daughter.  It was formally conveyed to her upon her mother's death in 1923.  

William and Rosalie moved to their Mimico Beach home in 1920.  Rosalie died of cancer in late 1925 and William sold the house in 1926.

In September 2012 the property was up for sale with an asking price of $2,588,000.

September 19, 2014 - Update

I have been told by a local resident that the building is now demolished.  It has stood vacant for some time.  Another loss of one of the original Mimico Beach Estates.

  1. Great information.. lot/house is currently for sale for $2.588 million (although they just bought it for 1.9 million)... They applied for a building permit to demolish/rebuild a new house but were denied by the City of Toronto. Guess thats why they are selling it now.
