Contrast

This is another pic from my archives from a day I was wandering around on University Ave. I headed down the back of these two buildings which actually face Queen St W at University and loved the contrast. The tall tower was designed by KPMB Architects and was built in 2006 and houses the Federal Court of Canada as well as a few other federal agencies. Its smaller brick neighbour is Campbell House which is a heritage house and museum built in 1822 and moved to this location in 1972.

Well, I know which I'd choose - I like my feets firmly on the ground!

What a great "contrast" photo this is. They are totally different buildings but they look like they are good neighbors.

I like Tom's comment, as I do enjoy the old by far much more than modern, but they do both have their charm, and importance! Great capture.

An intersection I know well.

I have not been in Campbell House.

Is that a sunshade that overhang. Bit strange. But a contrast it is.

What a fabulous comparison in architectural style Pat, they certainly built them to last in the 1800's ✨
