Heritage Conservation District

The neighbourhood just to the west of the U of Toronto downtown campus is known as Harbord Village and part of it has been declared a Heritage Conservation District which means that no major changes can be made to the buildings there. There is a great variety of homes there such as the white house with the great porch which I showed you a few days ago. This house is just around the corner from it and it has been beautifully restored and maintained. Most of these homes were built in the late 1800s and feature wonderful craftsmanship such as you see here.

This kind of brickwork is also very common in amsterdam.

I do like your photo of this historic home. Historic neighborhoods are certainly worth protecting and saving.

Everything about this house speaks of another age. It has amazing details. And the tiny slice of the one next door is nice, too. I don't think I've seen brickwork like this on the West Coast (it doesn't stand up to earthquakes).
