Fantastic photo Edward. A new fav of mine.

It's strange that the public realm on the street fails to match the grandeur of the built form in the Financial District. Even Bay Street itself has a rather ugly public realm overall, with rusty utility poles, overhead wires, concrete sidewalks along many blocks and generic street lights. Some ornamental street lights and buried overhead wires would go a long way towards improving the public realm.
