Over The Arch

This is a detail shot of one of the arches found on the upper floor of the Gladstone Hotel.  The lion's head is wonderful but it is the carving over the arch that I really like. You can also see the meticulous restoration that was put into the building and its brickwork. This area of Queen St is now arguably the centre of hipsterism downtown.

The lion looks a little scary but the carved scrolls are lovely.

Every building worth its salt needs a lion.

My daughter returned from Toronto with a card for Clafouti bakery on Queen Street, which she'd enjoyed. Any chance of a quick peek on your blog?
