Decidedly Deco

This Art Deco apartment building on St Clair Ave near Yonge St is famous for being the longtime home of world famous pianist Glenn Gould who spent most of his adult life here. It is wonderful to see an old beauty like this being maintained and in no danger of being replaced by a condo tower.

What a gorgeous building! It looks exactly like the building in London used as Hercule Poirot's apartment building. This building is shaped almost exactly the same.
