  14. By looking at the style from which the home was built, gives an insight to the times from which the first home owner lived. It displays a way of thought and a standard in society. The homes of the early years (1750-1820) express a time of reflection. They were using a style of architecture which was a reminder of their home land (many moving from England). The Georgian home offered a space of comfort. These homes were architecturally planned not only for function but for simple dignity. The Classic Revival (1820-1850) started to establish a comfort zone for the resident. They were going back to a time in history that would appear to be delightful. A time when more thought was spent on making their home not only a shelter but a symbol of their life. A expression of the settlers dignity, a reminder of democracy and freedom. Italianate (1850-1900) would be reinforcement of the changing society. The two storey square residence with projecting eaves and ornate cornice brackets is unique to Ontario. It would be a classical alternative to designs previously chosen. Colonial Bungalows (1900-1945) seems to have derived from the Ontario Classical Cottage of the 19th Century. These homes are smaller, with a more formal entries. The storey and a half structures borrowed features from the dominant structures, being larger houses of the time. An attraction would have been economy, this floor plan and style provided the most space for the least amount of money. Victory Homes (1940-1960) is a reflection of the war of the time. The Canadian government was making a strong effort to extend home ownership to the workers related to the defense industry, and veterans returning from war. Most of these homes were prefabricated, for a single family, the idea was to create a neat and tidy community for the working class. Suburban Homes (1950-2003) Strongly demonstrates a rise in standards of living (as we saw it) and the change in the common mode of transportation. These homes are larger (while still single family dwellings) the attached garages is now become standard. The classical detailing is lost to give way to cleaner straighter lines, while the Colonial revival is still popular with a twist, room for your car in an attached garage. The years changed home ownership from only the well to do, to the working man and everything in between. These changes are brought on by the introduction of industry, the economics of the time and population of our society. Your home still demonstrates your personal style and depth of your pocket. However, it also reflects the influence of the immigration to this great land, technological, and communication advances that have extended our boundaries which influences our interpretation of the world. As a response we have created a people making their own mark in many ways, including the architectural landscape of today.
