St Thomas's

St Thomas's Anglican Church is located right in the midst of the U of Toronto campus but isn't part of the university. It is a church of Anglo-Catholic tradition and was established in 1874 although this building was constructed in 1893. This Arts & Crafts church was designed by architect Eden Smith who designed many of the homes in Wychwood Park as well as 3 Carnegie libraries in the city, and several churches. Love that nice red door!

I find this of great architectural interest. I'd love to take a tour! I can smell that old church smell down here! The red door is typical, as I think I mentioned previously, of Anglican and Episcopal churches.
