Lawrence Ave Deco

This wonderful art deco building is actually part of the Lawrence Pumping Station and Reservoir in north Toronto which controls part of our water supply. It was built in 1958 of wonderful limestone and has been historically designated by the city (can't be changed or torn down) but I could find no info on the architect or anything else. I will post a close-up tomorrow of 1 of the 2 owls which are visible on the pedestals.

One of Toronto's architectural gems...a personal favorite in the wasteland of Caledonia-Lawrence
