Another Old School

This is one of the side doors from Harbord Collegiate Institute which is on Harbord St just a few blocks away from Central Tech which I showed you on April 1 for Theme Day. I was out looking for school pics and loved the carvings around this door and the details it was given even though it was not the main door. Harbord Collegiate is well known in the city for its high standards and has had many high profile alumni such as architect Frank Gehry and actor Kiefer Sutherland.

The frame on that door is beautiful. Those are some well known alumni.

How fantastic that this entrance received the extra attention to detail that most side entrances don't. Wow, Frank Gehry, that's impressive 💜

That is a beautifully carved doorway. It is rare to find these crafts any more.

...my grade school was built in 1913, but it looks similar to this one. Schools were classy back in the day. Thanks for sharing, take care.

Wow! What a year to begin construction on a new facility. Was the Depression as great in Canada as in the U.S.?
