Monday Window – April 26, 2021

thanks to Ludwig for hosting Monday Window https://mondaywindow.wordpress.com/2021/04/26/monday-window-april-26-2021/

From earlier posts you’ve probably noticed that my husband and I made a trip to Grimsby Beach last week and came across a village of very brightly painted homes. In this post I’ve concentrated on the windows. On Thursday I’ll post in Thursday Doors to feature the doors.

Monday Window – Humber College -South Campus

….this is all about the old vs the new

Most of the buildings on the south campus of Humber College are from the late 18th century when the grounds were the Psychiatric Hospital. Originally built as a branch of the Toronto Asylum for the Insane, the hospital officially opened its doors in 1890 as the Mimico Asylum — the first such institution in Canada to be built on the cottage system. After the hospital closed in 1979 the buildings stood empty and in 1988 it was declared a heritage site.

When Humber signed a 99-year lease for the land and buildings in 1991, it began a complete restoration of the cottage buildings. Today the buildings have been restored to their original beauty and serve as classrooms and studios for the students. In between some of the old building a few new modern structures have been built. It’s a nice contrast between new and old.

New Windows in an Old Neighbourhood

….thanks to Ludwig for hosting Monday Windows, https://mondaywindow.wordpress.com/2021/01/18/monday-window-january-18-2021/

Walking through the old neighbourhood close to St. Joe’s Hospital I couldn’t help but notice how many of the old homes had new window put in as well as undergoing some major renovations. Some of the windows were clearly new but had kept the charm of the older house. Others were a complete departure from the older architecture.

Monday Window – July 6, 2020

….thanks to Ludwig for hosting Monday Window

There’s lots of new builds and renovations going on in our neighbourhood. The one thing that I like about a lot of these additions are the windows that the owners have chosen to install in these modern structures.3-C719686-E3-CE-4-FCC-8439-C4257-F35881-F-1-201-a

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.
