Today's post is about a few of the places I remember as a child and some of the homes that I lived in with my family in Mimico, Ontario.
Mimico was the neighbourhood my family lived in before moving to Cooksville, Ontario.
"Mimico is a neighbourhood and a former municipality in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located in the south-west area of Toronto, along Lake Ontario. It is the south-east corner of the former Township (and later, City) of Etobicoke, and was an independent municipality from 1911 to 1967."

St. Leo's R.C. was the church that my family attended and where my brother and I went daily (my brother was an altar boy).
