Old Police Station

This Gothic Revival building was constructed in 1890 as the Ossington Avenue Police Station but now houses a day care centre. The building has heritage protection and looks as if it is being well maintained.

Hello, it is a pretty building. I like the brick and stone work. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week!

From police station to day care, that is quite a change in mission. Is that the fragments of the word "Police" above the door?

The stonework on each side of the door looks a little like totems Pat! I'm glad it's got heritage protection.

This is a fine looking building. Glad it has found a good use since the police left.

I've only visited Toronto twice but I remember a lot of older buildings made of red brick and stone. It that typical?
