Affordable Housing


 This building was just finished in the last year and was purposely built as affordable housing with money coming from various levels of government. It has 82 units of various sizes and is at least a start towards providing housing that is safe and affordable.

A Bridge in Autumn


 For most of the year this bridge which crosses a creek in the west end of the city is partly hidden by the leaves on all the trees around it but now we have a good view of it. Soon we will have a snowy view of it.

Fire Station 311


Fire Station 311 is found just off Yonge St south of St Clair Ave. When it opened in 1911 it was Fire Station 24 and horses were used to pull  the fire wagons. Times have changed and the city has grown a lot but the station still looks grand.

December Theme Day: Comfort Food


The December theme for the City Daily Photo Blog community is Comfort Food and mine may be a little unusual. Soda crackers have always been a comfort to me and I always have some nearby in times of stress and for added comfort a nice cup of peppermint tea is just the thing.

Hotrod


This is a perfect mural to paint on  garage door. It is a tough looking hotrod but I'm not sure who the artist is as there seem to be a lot of names sprinkled about it including Dudeman.

More Carvings


This is the pink carving that was visible behind yesterday's bear. The pink one features a narwhal with its huge horn and another creature which may have something to do with Inuit stories but I really don't know.  I like the little grey seal in the foreground.

Stone Bear


Right next to the seating and planters I have shown you the last 2 days there was this display of what is probably Inuit stone carvings. This bear was fabulous but there was no info at all about artists or anything else. I'll show you the pink piece in the background tomorrow.
