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.
If you’re in Toronto check out this exhibit. The royal family is still in existence today and kindly loaned the artefacts and jewels to the ROM.
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.
