Back in December, 2011 I did a post about the mixture of old and new architecture in downtown Toronto. It always fascinates me, so when my hubby and I were in Toronto recently taking in a new dinosaur exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum, I found myself once again capturing the contrast with my camera.
This is a picture of the Church of the Redeemer, an Anglican church on Bloor Street West in Toronto, right across the street from the museum. This church was built in 1879, and it still seems to stand proud even though it is overshadowed by the tall modern office building behind it. It’s like that little church is saying, “You don’t scare me, and I’m not going anywhere, so try and make me!!” Although the newer buildings in downtown Toronto are definitely beautiful, I still prefer the detail and character of the old structures.
