2. Week's Favorite
The first two will be the same, except we’ll work our way through the alphabet. The second can be a favorite image or activity from the week. The third will be different each time.
August 2016 - Toronto ON
I worked on Front St first at 325 Front and then at 320 Front. I'll concentrate on its most famous sights nearby, within walking distance. The blue arrows indicated where I worked.
Front St. First laid out in 1796, the street is one of the original streets of the Town of York. The street was laid out along the shoreline of Lake Ontario as it existed during that time. It remains an important street, with many important uses located along it, including the St. Lawrence Market, the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, Union Station and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The eastern section of Front Street, in the West Don Lands, east of Cherry Street, is being rebuilt as a broad tree-lined boulevard, intended to be pedestrian friendly commercial spine of the new neighbourhood.
These photos were taken at various times over the years.
Here is Glenn Gould shivering outside the CBC Building at 250 Front. There is a studio named after him in the building.
He doesn't look any happier in the sunshine. Perhaps he's just pensive?
Funny enough I attended the Lawren Harris exhibit at the AGO this week and Glenn Gould was highlighted there.
From the 9th floor at 320 Front looking towards the Skydome on a snowy day.
CBC building from the Intercontinental Hotel.
Royal York Hotel across from Union Station. P.S. there's some shiny going on here.
People scurrying to work in the RBC Tower.
One block of restaurants.
The Overdraught pub, a favourite of mine for lunch.
And across the street in front of the Convention Centre there is a row of food trucks.
Week's Favourite - is not a new photo, it is 50 years old as my baby cousin turned 50 this week!!
My sister (RIP) is on the left and I'm on the right.
This is how she spent her birthday week.
