The older parts of downtown Toronto are criss-crossed by a network of laneways that run behind the streets and their buildings and whose purpose it is/was to provide service access to the various properties. These lanes are usually not named but in some circumstances that is not the case when it is felt that naming the lane would be a suitable commemoration for someone. A lane in the Annex that runs through the U of Toronto has been named for bpNichol, a well-known Canadian poet and author. The lane is also the site of Coach House Press, one of Canada's most venerable literary presses which is suitably housed in a quirky old coach house! More on this lane & bpNichol tomorrow.
