Description: 46 Bay Street. Plan 300W Lot 7. This one-and-a-half storey red brick house is not unusual in its scale but does stand out with its medium-pitch gambrel roof, with horizontal siding in the front gable, front porch and bay window, and enclosed upper porch supported by wood columns. To the rear is a small addition. The gambrel roof indicates the Dutch Colonial Revival style, popular in the early twentieth century. The brick-veneer house does not appear on the 1910 fire insurance plan, but does on the 1928. It was likely built by Abraham Blower(s), described either as a contractor or labourer, prior to 1920 when he sold a portion of Lots 7 and 8 to David Mills. There have been some alterations to the building, including new railing on the porch. The house is designated under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act and is located within the Old Port Credit Village Heritage Conservation District.
