This wonderful building is the High Level Pumping Station, with the 3rd largest capacity of the 18 pumping stations in Toronto. Toronto's water comes from Lake Ontario and the city goes uphill from the lake requiring the use of pumps to deliver the water to the higher elevations. This building was built in 1906 in Edwardian Classical style and it has heritage designation but is still totally functional and is the hub for controlling the transmission of tap water across the city. It was open to the public during our Doors Open event in May but somehow I never got around to posting any pics till now. More pics for the next few days.
It is hard to read it but there is a sign over the door and I am taking part in Signs, Signs. Click HERE to see more signs from around the world.
