Thursday Doors – November 23, 2017 – North on Sixth Street


….thanks to Norm for hosting Thursday Doors

Lately I’ve been exploring and walking through my neighbourhood looking for interesting doors. I usually walk east or west from my house but last week I decided to venture north. I live on Sixth Street but I rarely go north of Lakeshore Blvd. I discovered some lovely homes, two churches and a Japanese temple. I took a closer look at St. Margaret’s Church.

St. Margaret’s has serviced the community of New Toronto for over 100 years. The cornerstone was laid in 1910 and the building was completed in 1911. It has numerous outreach programs, such as Out of the Cold, community dinners and the Boy Scouts.

Most of the homes are typical New Toronto homes, compact and situated on small lots but many owners clearly take pride in their places and numerous homes in the neighbourhood are undergoing extensive renovations.

  1. It’s fun to explore down unfamiliar streets – more often than not, you can find something interesting … and that’s exactly what you discovered 🙂
    I like the photo of the 2nd church with the reflections in the windows.
