Toronto French School

This is the main building belonging to the Toronto French School which is a private, co-ed, bilingual school located on Lawrence Ave E. This building was constructed as a residence in 1922 by the Sifton family and was known as Sifton Manor. It was purchased by the school in 1962 and is one of several buildings on the large property. It is unusual to see it without a lot of people milling about.

Beautiful building. Schools are open, if under special conditions.

...that red brick looks to be popular in Toronto, I bet that was made nearby.

That would have been quite an impressive residence in its day.

So the Roaring '20s must have been a good time for Canada, too.

Classic brick building. So glad it is now used as a school. Perfect.

Empty, like so many other places these days. It seems to be well maintained at 98 years.
