Re: "When Shaughnessy was affordable," Feb. 15

This article brought back memories of our family's purchase in Shaughnessy. My parents bought a very large house on Angus Drive during the Second World War. They paid $13,000 for it and rented it out to RCAF officers stationed on Sea Island. After the war, they sold it for $14,000. It cost too much to heat as it wasn't insulated.
