Moving through what would today be Exhibition GO station, the neighbourhood has been gentrified over the last few decades with Inglis being one of the casualties.Founded in 1859 by Thomas Mair, John Inglis, and Francis Evatt on July 27, 1859, John Inglis and Comapny began as a small machine shop under the name Mair, Inglis, and Evatt in Guelph producing milling machinery before moving to the Strachan Avenue location in Toronto in 1881 becoming John Inglis and Sons.  Renamed many times, it was last changed to Whirlpool Canada in 2001. The famous blue and white billboard overlooking the Gardiner Expressway would go up in 1975 with many messages displayed to motorists over the years, and would be dimmed and demolished during the last week of July, 2014.
