If my grandparents were still alive they would have been over 100 years old…..
….and my great, great grandfather (over 160 years ago) and his mother (over 200 years ago). In fact, the next two photos are over a hundred years old.
Here in Canada this church is considered old. It was built before Canada became a country in 1867.
….check out Monday Window for more window shots
All these window shots were taken inside Montgomery’s Inn. It is one of many Toronto Historical Museums and the one that I volunteer at two days a week.

The ROM is the Royal Ontario Museum located in downtown Toronto. I’ve been a member for several years and whenever I’m in the area I like to drop in and see what’s new. Recently I went to to see the Treasures of a Desert Kingdom.
Amassed over the course of nearly four centuries, these treasures reflect the history and artistic legacy of the Rathore dynasty, one of the longest continuous royal lineages in the world, that ruled this desert kingdom until India’s independence in 1947. (Copied from the ROM website)
Unfortunately the show ended September 2. I was hoping to return and spend more time in the gallery.

On Thursday I made a quick trip to the library at WAAC. After a short meeting I decided to head over to the museum which is literally around the corner. It was a beautiful day and there were lots of people on the street and some were sitting on walls to take in a fabulous group of street musicians.
Inside the museum I only had time to visit one exhibit. I have a membership so I know that I can come back at any time and take a closer look at things that really interest me. I chose to walk around the ‘Treasures of a Desert Kingdom’. What a wonderfully rich display wealth, art and culture.
Some of the most interesting artefacts were the chairs, thrones and modes of transportation.

This is literally what remains of the old water station that provided water for the Good Year Plant that used to employ hundreds of residents from Mimico, New Toronto and Long Branch (now south Etobicoke and part of Toronto). The plant was demolished about 30 years ago and replaced with housing.
