Some giant suggestions from an empty Yonge & Dundas Square.
The frogs of College Park are closed for business.
Friday night at Yonge & Dundas Square. More billboards than people.
This is where one of Toronto’s most notorious affairs took place on a scandalous night in 1839. Been writing about it this week for The Toronto Book of Love, so I paid Osgoode Hall a visit during a careful walk through the eerie distancing quiet of downtown.
Day 7 of social distancing. We’ve resorted to dressing the dog up as if he has to go to work. #flattenthecurve
A dusk wander along the Railpath, shaking off some social distance cobwebs with the back of the Osler Fish Warehouse.
Sunset from our social distancing cell, featuring the Mississauga skyline.
The new titans of Front Street in 1930. Union Station had opened 3 yrs earlier. The Royal York Hotel just the year before. Many of Toronto's most impressive landmarks were built in the 1920s, just before the Great Depression hit & new construction stalled.
Shared some grisly stories about this place with some lovely people from CIBC today. Even managed to include a very quick primer on the importance of treaties & unceded territory, which feels even more important than usual these days.
