This lovely sign is located on a building on College St that opened in 1892 as the Victoria Hospital For Sick Children. Designed by architects, Darling & Curry, it was the first hospital in Canada exclusively for paediatrics and remained in use until 1951 when the renamed Hospital For Sick Children moved to University Ave. The building was used as office space and then sat empty until 1991 when it was restored and adapted for use by the Canadian Red Cross, reopening in 1993. I love the elegant old-fashioned angels! Sorry about the wires but College St has streetcars and as result has lots of overhead wiring.
