Agnes Theobald was interviewed in her home on Theobald Road. The house is situated on a rise of land. Now it is surrounded by newer, smaller houses, but once it was a farmhouse surrounded by fields.

Theobald Road, once a farm road, is now a much traveled diagonal street connecting Lincoln Avenue and Dempster Street near the Edens Expressway access ramps. Agnes told about her interesting old house and the changes in the house since it was built by her grandfather about 1855. She also discussed her life on the farm, career, and travels.
