Did you know?
Roncesvalles, Spain, is the site of a battle against Napoleon in the 19th century, in which Colonel Walter O’Hara, a prominent member of the British army, fought before immigrating to Toronto. Today, Roncesvalles Avenue marks land he once owned, and several streets in the surrounding neighbourhood are named after his family (Marion Street – his wife; Constance Street – his daughter, etc.)
Sorauren was another battle site in Spain during the 1813 Battle of the Pyrenees.
