Major Matthews notes written below the print are:
"The Pig and Whistle" Westminster Road; as in 1960. A notable roadhouse on Westminster Road, now Kingsway, in the days when that paved highway was a slit in the forest. Also called "Collingwood Hotel". Originally it faced Westminster Road but in 1960 is 3399 Kingsway, and is a private house facing Stamford street, Central Park. The roadhouses were "Junction Inn" at Westminster Road and North Arm Road (Fraser); next "Gladstone Inn", near Gladstone Road; "Pig and Whistle", nearer Central Park; and the "Royal Oak", still standing in 1960. They were important places; landmarks to mark progress as a buggy passed through the towering trees. Photo taken June 1960 by Reuben Hamilton, 836 East 20th. City Archives.
