As Toronto and its surrounding cities continue to expand at a breakneck pace, older houses and structures that stand in its way are quickly demolished, being replaced by ugly econoboxes. What a shame!
I view these charming structures for what they are - links to the past. A past where style, character and beauty, not profit, were the main influences on a building’s architectural design.
I feel a certain obligation - even a compulsion - to document these when I encounter them. While I still can.
