Plot 10, Lot 37
Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Toronto

Born in Paris, Ontario, Gouinlock received much of his later education in Winnipeg, coming to Toronto around the turn-of-the-century, where he practiced his architectural skills for more than 30 years. He was responsible for such diverse Toronto landmarks as the Alexandra Palace apartment building on University Avenue and the Temple Building at the northwest corner of Richmond and Bay Streets, both of which have been demolished. Several Gouinlock buildings, the Administration, now Press (1905), Horticulture (1907), Music (1908), and British Government, now Arts, Craft and Hobbies (1912), Buildings still stand in the Exhibition grounds. George Gouinlock died on February 13, 1932.
