History

 One Word Sunday


December 2020 - Toronto ON


We had to use our senses of deduction to figure out how to get the bus terminal from Union Station indoors. Union Station has been under renovations since forever and this area has been blocked off for a couple of years. 

We found our way through Union to the Scotiabank Centre (it was the Air Canada Centre when construction started!).

The Scotiabank Centre is built on the site of the Canada Post Delivery Building and still retains the east and south walls. A conservation program was implemented during construction of the original building facade. Stonework, bas-relief plans, and historic window profiles were restored.

  1. I wonder if it just early day and the signage will be improved or it just hasn't been well done. I remember the Air Canada Centre.

  2. When you described the lockdown in your area, I understood that you are really and truly locked down, though the visit to this terminal seems rather indoors-y. I think some of our stores are more open than yours, but I'm not going indoors anywhere, only ordering delivery or curbside pick-up. Thanks for explaining!

    1. Public transit is not locked down, but the bus terminal was almost empty. Everyone wears a mask and maintains their social distance.

  3. Isn't it amazing (in a horrifying way) how long renovations can take?

  4. Well from the looks of things -your country has taken the virus way more serious than the US! Not surprising we have so many deaths.
