There are a lot of NOS in this scene and they all apply to senior citizens. ;) The teenagers are even worse. :)

Historic Building

Andy | Tuesday, November 25, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

Built in 1930 the Dominion Bank is located on the southwest corner of Yonge and Gerrard Streets in The City Of Toronto. It has been designated heritage site by the Toronto Historical Board.

*****************************************


No longer a bank it is now the Elephant and Castle Pub. Designed in 1930 by John M. Lyle, with carvings that represent Canadian agriculture and industry.

Another one on the outside of the building is a large medallion that pays tribute to Queen Victoria. .

You Have Mail

Andy | Monday, November 24, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

Since its opening in 1914 Port Perry’s Post Office has stood as a landmark for 100 years. The turret clock was ordered from J. Smith and Sons of the Midland Clock Works in Derby, England, and an 800-pound iron bell from John Taylor Bellfounders in Loughborough, England. The clock, which is known to be temperamental at best, requires weekly tuning and upkeep. Due to the cost of the maintenance, the cast iron bell no longer tolls from its perch 50 feet over downtown Port Perry, though the mechanism still ticks away as it has for over 100 years.
