Wonderful Brickwork


I've always admired this building found along Harbord St near U of Toronto. It was built in 1880 and now has heritage protection probably because of that wonderful brickwork. The main floor houses a bookstore and the other floors are probably flats.

That brickwork is amazing. It's good to know it has protection. And, a book store on ground level is a great addition.

Very attractive brickwork. People cared more about such things in the old days.
