Casa Loma

This "castle" right in the middle of the city was built by Sir Henry Pellatt circa 1911-14. He ran out of money before finishing it. This photo is taken from down the hill on Spadina Rd - it looks totally different in summer. The flag in the foreground is the City of Toronto flag flying in front of the Archives.

I wonder why the flag is at half-mast?

The castle looks really big from that perspective!

Not sure why the flag is half-mast - may be because of a Provincial Policeman who was killed a couple of days ago near London.
