In the postwar era, many of Toronto’s iconic downtown buildings were demolished to make way for modern office towers. Rosa and Spencer Clark, passionate supporters of the Arts and Crafts movement and eager to preserve examples of handcrafted masonry, rescued architectural fragments from some of these buildings and relocated them to their Scarborough home, now known as the Guild Park and Gardens. Some of the salvaged stones were transformed into sculptural installations that can be seen on the grounds of the park today. Other pieces, however, were relegated to long-term storage. For the first time in fifty years, a selection of these salvaged stones has returned to the downtown core for Lost & Found: Rediscovering Fragments of Old Toronto, a year-long exhibition in the Campbell House garden.
Gorgeous gardens in the heart of a busy intersection University and Queen.
This guy was having his lunch and watching me take photos, but did he move, nope.
