About that title: of course, I only speak for myself. 😉
First, here’s what we saw last week:
This was to be the teaser photo, to tempt you along on this walk. I completely forgot to insert it in the last post. If you didn’t join us, see if you know where this carving is:
Four walkers. Four historical buildings. Towering achievements, all. Lots of discussion, observation and other things, in between. Architectural examples from between 1856 and 1893. Yes, there are even older buildings in Toronto. We’ve seen one of them… some of you may remember a very brief visit to Scadding Cabin, on the CNE grounds? More ahead, of course. Last week, we stayed central. If you don’t know these buildings, or wonder about addresses, do leave a comment.

This walk was a great pleasure to share. Many more Toronto historical buildings will inspire other walks. If any of them really appeal to you, or if you see an intriguing architectural detail that you want to share, please do suggest a walk destination.dest All walkable or transitable journeys gladly considered. You can even lead a walk.
This week, Sunday, November 01, 2015:
Let’s try that Harbord Village walk idea again and visit some of the StoryPosts. We can listen and consider the history of part of our amazing neighbourhood. Storytellers’ voice recordings are available at each stop, by phone. Interesting stuff – and should take two hours or less.
It won’t be the same without you! Walk with us – and bring friends. If you grew up in the neighbourhood, or had family who did, this should be fun. You may have stories to share, too.
Coming right up:
Other neighbourhoods. Hot cider and blooms at Allan Gardens. Another year of Winter Stations. A nifty ravine in the beaches. And other walks, perhaps suggested by you…
Please notice that I’m not using the word “snow.”
Are you reading about our club for the first time?
Welcome. You really should walk with us! See you in the morning!
