Classy Entrance

This is the north facade along Bloor St W of the Lillian Massey building which was built from 1908 to 1912 as the Household Sciences building of U of Toronto. The architect was George Martell Miller and the building has been given heritage protection. There is no longer a Household Sciences program at the university and most of the building is now used for other faculty offices but this northerly section has been rented out to a clothing store and although the outside remains original the interior has been renovated a lot. I'll show you its neighbour across the road tomorrow.  
Happy St Patrick's Day to everyone!

That is a fabulous looking building. It looks like school buildings used to look.

What a beautiful old building. They definitely don't make them like that anymore.

Oh Yes, Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too. Not much of a celebration this year. Lovely old building. Good that it is now protected.

In those earlier days of architecture they knew how to make an impression. Thats now a bit disappeared I think.
