Hi Al,

That's where the Wares lived for a couple of generations! Lucy married Edmund Joseph Ware about 1901, and her dad helped him build a corner store across the Don River when the Danforth first opened up. I'm descended from their son, and have seen the store.

Are you in the Toronto area?

No. It is a very common name though so a blanket shout out probably isn't going to do you much good. Good Luck
