July 2015 - Toronto ON
Another city walk, this time starting at University and Queen St. W. destination the Toronto sign at Nathan Phillips Square, or City Hall, erected for the Pan Am games.
Stepping out the the Osgoode Subway station I crossed into the middle of University to snap these of
the soaring South African War Memorial which commemorates Canada's participation in the Boer War, it consists of three bronze figures at the base of a granite column. Another bronze figure is found at the top of the memorial.
Back across and I cut through Osgoode Hall, click here for more photos and our delicious lunch we had here two summers ago. Note to self - must go back.
It looked stunning in the early morning light with few people about.

Heading back I walked down Bay St. through the heart of the financial district.
The old Bank of Montreal.
And towering over the old Bank of Montreal is the "new" BMO Tower known as First Canadian Place.
The old Bank of Commerce. Click here for some stunning views of this building.
The "new" Bank of Commerce now known as CIBC.
The "new" RBC or Royal Bank of Canada as it used to be called.
The sun bouncing off the gold of RBC.
Brookfield Place - I'll show you inside on another visit.
We've reached the corner of Bay and Front St and the CN Tower is looming over.
