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.

Goodness, that's a gorgeous building! Love it. I also find signs like this very funny. "Faith Matters." Well, yeah, especially if you put your faith in the wrong thing or person or in the non-existent. :)

And John Knox was a really nasty man, actually. But that's another whole story. So was Luther. OK, I'll stop now.

Amazing how much this looks like a similar building on the campus of Ewha Womans University in Seoul, South Korea.

An impressive, grand entrance. And like how there are two long signs complementing the pillar design and shape.

Always amazing to imagine a beauty like this has been standing solidly in this spot for a hundred years, oh the changes happening around it!
P.s. Is your railway service from the airport to the city opening soon?
