Last spring, I went for a looong photo-walk with a friend and my mother, all along Queen Street and Wellington Street, right through the heart of downtown Toronto. We got some really good photos, had a lot of fun, and finished with lunch at a nice restaurant. (Must do it again – soon.) A lot of the buildings on Queen Street East date back to the nineteenth and early twentieth century – low-rise, with shops on the ground floor and offices or apartments above, with lots of wood trim, old brick, and plaster. It’s a bit scruffy, and full of little hidden gems that you tend to find by accident.
