Reading DeWolf’s article I noticed the bit about Swastika Avenue – is this what is now Place Ste-Famille, do you think?
Yes, it is, according to Les rues de Montréal which I have as a book. The contents are mostly included in the city’s toponymy database, but it has a list of changed street names in the back that doesn’t seem to be online. Seems they changed Swastika to Place Sainte-Famille in 1934.
Interestingly, the book does not list Tara Hall, another named tiny alley-like street in that general area, just north of Milton. Nor does it list Swiss Lane.
Chris DeWolf’s piece on Swiss Lane is here.
I’d always wondered about the rue du Laos. I had no idea there was a Laotian housing coop there!
