FRESH FACT:
Turner Avenue was once the main roadway for the old Highfield school for boys founded in 1901 (now relocated as Hillfield Strathallan College on the West Hamilton mountain)
Circa 1910 postcard of an outdoor ice hockey game at Highfield School in Hamilton, Ontario. Founded in 1901 as Highfield School for Boys, this school was the first private residential and day school for boys in the city of Hamilton. It was a prep school for boys planning to enter the Royal Military College of Canada. A severe fire broke out in 1918 and the damage to the building effectively ended the boarding program. In 1933 that structure was replaced by the current house at 362 Bay Street South. VIEW RELATED POST HERE

 The home was designed by Hamilton architect Joshua Armes, who also designed the Clubhouse for the Hamilton Golf & Country Club. Ms. Fuller was reportedly from South Carolina and had planned to move to Hamilton. Although she never moved, the house was built for her and featured a large, shaded front porch. The first resident of the house was E.M. Dalley, whose father, F.F. Dalley, built a mansion in 1925 on the family's 100 acre estate in Ancaster called Wynnstay.
