Thursday Doors – Montgomery Rd.

….thanks to Norm for hosting Thursday Doors

Since I started baking bread on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Montgomery’s Inn I often find myself walking home if I don’t have the car. On those days my husband drops me off in the morning and then I make my way back home on foot. It’s a long way so I usually phone my husband and have him pick me up at the half point point.

Whenever I do start walking home I pass some amazing and beautiful homes on Montgomery Rd.. Here are some of the more interesting doors.

Thursday Doors – May 24, 2018

….Montgomery’s Inn

At the intersection of Dundas and Islington in the west end of Toronto sits the heritage site of Montgomery’s Inn. The inn was built in 1830 by Thomas and Margaret Montgomery, both immigrants from Ireland. It served as a meeting place for the community and a place for travellers to rest and enjoy a drink and a meal. The original property covered 400 acres of land and was used primarily for farming.

Today the building has been restored and serves as a historical museum and hosts various groups and exhibitions. Momentarily the building is undergoing more restoration but remains open to the public. For more information about the history go here.IMG_1991

Thursday Doors – April 26, 2018

…..despite the tragedy that this city experienced this week my post will remain positive

Toronto is still one of the best cities in the world to live. We were all shocked by Monday’s senseless act where a lone disturbed man ran down innocent pedestrians on the sidewalk with a van.

Toronto the Good is now being replaced with Toronto Strong. Today I walked about my west end neighbourhood and photographed some colourful and interesting doors.

Thursday Doors (April 19, 2018) – MacNab Street North

…..the first really beautiful spring day

Thanks to Norm for hosting Thursday Doors

Today we all went to Hamilton for a family lunch at daughter #2’s house. It was such a glorious spring day that we decided to stretch our legs and walk towards the park down the street. Gaelan and her family live on a street of old Victorian homes and lots of churches. Here are a few of the wonderful doors we encountered on our walk.
