Watcher at the window

Standard


A couple of Fridays ago, the weather in Toronto was glorious – sunny, warm – and it promised to be the same on the weekend. So late on that Friday afternoon, I managed to get a deal on a rental car, and spent the weekend driving around the GTA (Greater Toronto Area – yes, I even ventured into Mississauga) and shooting.
This house is one of my finds. In the University of Toronto Annex neighbourhood, it has two faces on either side of the main door, and a face on each of two bay windows.
The late architectural historian Patricia McHugh described this house as having “too many quick and fussy decorative details for its own good,” but I think that’s a bit harsh.
