A Gate In Little Italy

While walking to College St in Little Italy for brunch, I came upon this wonderful old gate in front of one of the old Victorian homes in the neighbourhood. On a hot day this overgrown front garden looked very cool and refreshing and this gate looks like it may have been guarding the space for many, many years.

Looks like a gateway to an imaginary, mysterious, world.

That really is a great scene. I love the old gate and I love the overgrown garden. It adds a bit of mystery.

That is a nice romantic looking gate - not like some of the garish ones found in Little Italy.
