The history of the Holland and Wellington intersection

My article in this week's Kitchissippi Times is on the history of the intersection of Wellington Street West and Holland Avenue. Being arguably the busiest intersection in Kitchissippi, it has a lot of history. From streetcars to horses to gas lamps to bible agents to Laura Secords to fires and more, this corner has seen a lot of change over the 130 years of so that it has existed.
