The St Lawrence Market neighbourhood is the oldest part of the city and I thought I would show you a closer view of the buildings that were behind the dog fountain of last week. These three buildings on Front St E were built in the 1870s and have now been lovingly restored and house offices and retail spaces but were originally warehouses. The one on the left is the only building remaining in the city with a totally cast-iron facade. The one in the middle was the model for the patterns in the wonderful mural on the Flatiron Building which we saw last week.
