An Annex Beauty


 This has always been my favourite house in the Annex neighbourhood probably because of that wonderful rounded glass window area above the door. I noticed when I went by in October that there is a historical sign out front now which tells how one of our past prime ministers, Lester Pearson, lived here in a 3rd floor flat in the 1920s. I wonder if he was a student then? He went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

It's strange how an outstanding feature like that wonderful window can make even an otherwise unremarkable dwelling into a building that stops you in your tracks.

Worthy of a future prime minister.

It is a great looking house with the window making it so inviting. I guess Pearson Airport is named after the past PM.

Oh I love that rounded window too.

I once had a turret window in a similar Victorian house turned into apartments. Now I live in a modern building with a rounded portion windows roundabout! Something special about living in a tower

It is an attractive building, but it needs some landscape help.
