It's A Small World...

We all laugh and joke that there are only three degrees of separation here at The Point, but still there are occasions when the small world leads us down some interesting paths.  The one began with this gorgeous wedding picture of Mina Flavelle Barrett with her bridesmaid. 

Her bridesmaid (girl on the left) is Valda Bonnick, whose parents owned one of Toronto's grand Jarvis Street houses that once stood where Mt. Pleasant now feeds into Jarvis.  Their gardens were where the Rogers Building now has its lobby.  Valda Bonnick went on to marry David E. Kennedy of Guelph, Ontario, in 1911.  In the 1940s, their nephew John Kennedy and his wife, Betty, came to cottage at The Point. 

Small world...
