Just read your post about Veronique Birt living with Albert Edward and Grace Laura Newman in Toronto. Did you know that this is the Bert "Red" Newman star of the musical comedy troop "the Dumbells". Canada's first international stars of the stage. My grandmother was a first cousin of Grace Newman nee Davis. Although her husband was touring for most of the 1920's and 30's they kept a house in Toronto where Grace stayed while Bert was on the road. Later, they also had a hotel at Wasaga Beach.
