Long Island Mike asked about the Sterling Bank of Canada:

The Sterling Bank of Canada existed from 1905 to 1924. It merged with The Commerce in 1928.

In the early years, it issued bank notes like this (see thumbnail).

Well, the Spadina line opened in 1978, but I don't know if the canopy to the Heath Street entrance of St. Clair West was built at that time. It probably was - it has some design elements from the Yorkdale station. Note the windows at the top are shaped like subway windows just like the Yorkdale Station; also the style is somewhat remenicscent of Eb Zeidler's designs - see Eaton Centre, Ontario Place (buildings from the 1970's) and somewhat of a precursor to his Toronto Centre for the Arts up in North York.

Android: Concerning that signpost "bike rack" pic on 10/16 I will mention that a signpost is NOT the best place to lock up a bicycle-I recall a buddy of mine telling me about bikes being stolen in NYC by thieves actually lifting them up and over the top of the signpost-especially if they were chained up somewhat loosely and fit around the sign itself.

That Kryptonite lock helps-but what would stop a dedicated thief from removing the sign-especially if it is attached on with traditional fasteners like nuts and bolts? There's nothing wrong with good strong bike racks!

Android: 10/20 -The TTC Castle Frank Station looks OK for it age now that it is just past 40 now - it was nicely designed in a utilitarian era.

10/21 - Is the Don Jail still a jail? I remember the Nick Gaol AYH Hostel in Ottawa was a former jail-cells were used for bed space. I can't shake the thoughts of Elvis doing "Jailhouse Rock" or nicknames like the hoosegow,the joint,the hole,the Big House...that's enough.

10/21- Filmore's Hotel looks like an old classic...

10/22 - That "travel writers" pic looks like it was in a antique or flea market-with that projector in the background to show the travelogues or home made Super 8
film flicks...the typewriters look like late 60s/early 70s to me. Those globes can be dated by looking at the country names that no longer exist-like the USSR.

Whoever lives there probably doesn't know much about guitars and music anyway; more of the type who buys a bunch of kit to show off but plays perhaps once a week.

For starters, (s)he should know that storing guitars in the direct sunlight like that isn't good for them. It could warp the wood, or do worse damage.

As much as I think it's a little tacky, maybe they're on to something with this. Condos usually lack a way of personalizing the exterior of your unit the way you can with a house. This weird window sliver space is like an public niche to show people a bit of your personality: this person likes music, another has a telescope (they must like astronomy), another has a painting and easel (can't see what painting, but what a stupid place for it anyway).

What would you put in your weird window sliver?

egotrippin
2009-Nov-04, 21:34
A big ol' assortment of plants. Honestly, what could be better? Most plants need a lot of light, and this is a prime piece of indoor space that provides that. For the most part, keeping things in direct light like that is ill-advised. The sun can be quite damaging to many possessions, whether it be damage by warping, bleaching, overheating, and so on.

The cars whipping by the windows must be interesting.

The building in the picture is actually a parking garage (so probably not too many residents to admire the view):

Of course there are still plenty of condos close (but not quite that close) to the Gardiner along to the west.

I just wanted to be sure that the night photo of the Flatiron Building is credited to Sam Javanrouh, a fantastic Toronto photographer.

He posts a different photo each day at: http://wvs.topleftpixel.com/

Android: 11/13: That pic of the reflection of the streetcar on the stainless steel side of the hot dog cart is quite interesting and almost puzzle-like.
11/14 I will bet sitting next to that water feature is quite popular on a hot Summer day...
You mean the sign's COVER will come to make itself known to that person
placing those letters especially if the support board is not placed correctly...

Perhaps the building owner has gone off to Home Depot for a new one. Old doors are you know, drafty, heavy...

11/14: Huron/College old doors: Is that glass original? I know those doors are old but they don't make them that way any more...
11/17: GO Train at Union Station-a good telephoto pic of a long train there...
Santa Claus Parade spectators on Massey Hall fire escape before being escorted off by the Police...I understand wanting to watch a Parade but what if one of them gets hurt some way...especially if any have been drinking.
I recall prime places at NYC's St.Patrick's Day Parade to watch have been off-limits because of abuse like drinking in public before a hard crackdown in the mid 80s...You find a good spot and then...it's off limits! LI MIKE
