Knox Walkway

Knox College at U of Toronto is u-shaped and this covered walkway (cloister) crosses from one arm of the u to the other creating two quadrangles on either side. I will show you one of them tomorrow. When you enter the door at the far end you are in the hallway in yesterday's post.

Gothic Splendor

This is the main entrance hall to Knox College at U of Toronto. It is a delight to see it every time I walk in here. Those stairs on the left lead up to the chapel which I showed you last Sunday. More to come tomorrow.

A Gothic College

This is one of the main entrances into Knox College at U of Toronto. Knox is a postgraduate college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church of Canada and hence the banners stating "Faith Matters". This Gothic building was constructed in 1915 and has beautiful interior features some of which I will show you over the next few days.

Through The Door

This is the view from the entrance hall of Whitney Hall, a residence at University College at U of Toronto. The hall was built in 1931 and here we are looking from the door on St George St through to the door looking out to the back campus which I showed you last Tuesday - where the field hockey will take place during the PanAm Games in July.

Art In The Laneway

I spotted this fabulous piece during a recent wander along the laneway known as Graffiti Alley which runs along behind Queen St West. The artist for this one is Hunto, an Italian now based in London England. I love the colours!

Day Of Rest

This Canada Goose was taking it easy one day as I passed through a park that was quite busy with bird and human activity but no one dared disturb it since these geese can be so fierce!

Leaning In There

This very large Catalpa tree is well known in west-end Toronto for the way it leans over Davenport Rd rather precariously but yet continues to hang in even through the really bad ice storms and snow loads we tend to get in winter. It doesn't even seem to lose any branches! It will soon be leafing out and will also be covered with lovely white flowers. It has been nominated in the Great Toronto Tree Hunt which is running now to celebrate the greatest trees in the city. I will have to watch to see if it wins in one of the categories.
