Thread: Good fences make good photos...

  1. Default Good fences make good photos...

    Hey everyone,

    Globe & Mail's "Architourist" here. I'm trying to assemble a bunch of photographs of some really interesting fences for a column. Gotta be residential and the more innovative the better...can also be weird, too, i.e. using reclaimed materials.

    Can anyone direct me to some neighbourhoods/addresses? Or a Google street view of some?

    I will give credit to forumers (and will use real names if you want to provide them) for any that I use.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    My favorite fence is the one that does not exist between our backyard and our neighbours' in Corktown. It's one of the few rowhouses I've seen with a shared backyard, and it makes the 14-foot wide plots feel much less cramped.

    The "bike fence" near the western end of King St., a couple of blocks before Roncesvalles. Here's one crappy photo that doesn't do it justice:

    Haven't been by there in a while, but it looks more overgrown in Streetview than I remember.

    Since moving into a rowhouse, I've had the desire to do that too.

    The hoarding for the new towers at the Distillery is pretty cool.

    Does the plastic at Ernst Zundel's old haunt count?

    i don't know if this would count as residential, i think it's more institutional...

    A rather traditional fence, but done well.
