September 2014 - Toronto ON
We went to Word on the Street last Sunday and dropped into the Victoria College book sale. I didn't look at the books we just wanted to check out the building.
Victoria University is a college of the University of Toronto, founded in 1836 and named for Queen Victoria. It is commonly called Victoria College, informally Vic, after the original academic component that now forms its undergraduate division. Since 1928, Victoria College has retained secular studies in the liberal arts and sciences while Emmanuel College has functioned as its postgraduate theological college.
The building was covered in scaffolding so I didn't take any photos other than these. Now that I have researched the college for this post I will definitely go back and explore further.
As we entered we saw these two stained glass windows our the door.
This painting of Northrup Frye was inside the college.
