THE COMPLEX STARTED NINE HOUSES DOWN FROM THE LANE BEHIND THE ROSEMONT THEATRE EXTENDED TO 9TH AVENUE IN THE WEST AND 13TH AVENUE IN THE EAST (EDGE OF THE MARTINEAU QUARRY).
SOUTH BORDER WAS THE ANGUS SHOPS. ST.JOSEPH ENDED BEFORE THE WESTERN EDGE.

MAIN FEATURES WERE TENNIS COURTS, AN ATHLETIC FIELD - BASEBALL HOCKEY AND OTHER SPORTS. A GYMNASIUM WITH A STAGE - CENTER WAS KNOWN FOR BOXING AND WRESTLING, A BOWLING ALLEY AND A SOCIAL CLUB THE "LUCKY SEVEN".

COMPLEX WAS DEMOLISHED IN THE 1956-1958 PERIOD.
