Thursday Doors

Linking up at Norm's Thursday Doors.

Toronto ON

These photos are from a couple of summers ago as we wandered the area around Harbord Village.



It lies just to the west of the University of Toronto, with its most commonly accepted borders being Bloor Street on the north, Spadina Avenue on the east, College Street to the south, and Bathurst Street to the west.


The area was built up in the late nineteenth century as a working class and lower middle class community, not as prosperous as the mansions of the Annex to the north, but also not a poor and immigrant-heavy neighbourhood like Kensington Market just to the south.

  1. That's a lovely neighbourhood. We walked around there a bit on our last visit. Nice shots of some of those beautiful older homes.

  4. Pretty. I love how so many of them have gardens in abundance. Really fond of the yellow and turquoise.

  5. Love the roses on the wall in your last image! These houses still look very nice for middle class - here in California middle class people would not be able to afford these. Hope you are doing okay with everything that just has taken place in Toronto? Wishing you an enjoyable weekend!
