Now That Is A Gatepost!

This gateway is one of the entrances into Glendon College which is part of York University, one of the three universities in the city. The college is located on what had been the estate of E. R. Wood, a prominent financier who had built his home here in 1924. You can see a stylized W in the centre of the gate itself. I have never been on the grounds of the college so will have to make a point of visiting it soon.

I thought it was a small building! :) Love your photo and it appears you've got some snow.

So glad that you father is in a good place! I can imagine you're relieved. Take good care of yourself, too!

Guess you have to donate some pretty big bucks to get your letter on a gate. :-)

Now that is a substantial gate post and gate. It must impress all who go through this gate including the students who attend this school.
