This is a pic of the public walkway that leads up the steep hill to Casa Loma at the top. The hill itself was part of the shoreline of an ancient lake and the name Baldwin refers to the family who owned this property before it became public. The big steps on the left are for sitting while the 110 steps to the right lead you to the top. In the 1960s this area was to be taken over by a 6 lane highway which would have run through the centre of the Annex neighbourhood but was cancelled in 1971 after probably the largest resistance our city has ever seen with protests everywhere!
