I have come to love these old house numbers, and I've photographed quite a few of them. Several of these are the same vintage, while a few are newer, or older. Most have the same font, but I can see at least 3 variations.
The following are a collection of the bulk of the remaining numbers in my neighbourhood (roughly 25 blocks?) There are a few others I didn't photograph (since people were out on their porch, for example.
Also note the general state of disrepair on most of these homes. Some are nicely restored, others are literally rotting and falling apart.
I still don't know how to cut one of these posts with a "keep reading after the cut", so this will be a rather large post with 28 photos.
117 & 115 Fourth Street West
A series of townhouses/apartments. There were also numbers 123 & 125 (not photographed).

129 - Fifth Street East
This is a nicely restored Victorian. Original wood siding (in a dark pink).

Townhouses with original doors, porch roof/columns.
A lovely number 142 on the historic Stormont Cottages. See: http://www.cornwall-lacac.on.ca/
York & First Street West
On the same building are a set of old enameled street signs (these are very scarce). Note that these are in different styles, both in the shape of the plaques and the font.
219 First Street West
Sadly this number is now gone, since the entire porch roof has recently been gutted. That nice original dentil moulding - gone. I'm not sure if the porch columns were still there.

A house just down the street from me.
