Tape Measure

Andy | Saturday, September 14, 2013 | Best Blogger Tips

At one time this used to Toronto's garment district and it's a tribute to the workers (mostly women) that laboured in the factories. The tape measure running along the sidewalk originally painted by artist Stephen Cruise simply as an outline of the sowing ruler. The paint job is the unsanctioned work of the Toronto sidewalk artist, who signs his paintings “VicTor.”s, within the last few years, painted it yellow, and filled in the numbers without Cruise’s blessing or approval.

Bronze Statues

Andy | Tuesday, September 10, 2013 | Best Blogger Tips

"The Endless Bench," a 12-foot outdoor sculpture that depicts the bond between mothers and children was installed on July 7, 1984 on the front lawn of University Avenue entrance to the Sick Kids Hospital. Donated by artist Lea Vivot in remembrance of her son Morris who died in 1979. On October 3, 1999 the statues were stolen. At first officials believed that the statues were taken as a prank, and that they would soon be returned. A hospital surveillance tape showed seven people at the site; three are seen moving the more than 300 lb. statues into a van. Hospital officials issued a no questions asked public plea on October 14 for the return of the statues. Within the first hour the story became public, an anonymous caller revealed the location of the statues and arrangements were made to have them returned to Sick Kids. Upon their return added measures were taken to secure them. No charges were ever laid, and all information that led to the return of the statues have remained confidential.

Old St. Thomas Church & The Witch's Grave

Andy | Tuesday, September 03, 2013 | | Best Blogger Tips

The St. Thomas Pioneer Church, is situated in the City of St. Thomas, Ontario. The brick and stucco building was designed in the Gothic Revival style and was constructed in 1824.

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


The Church also includes many interesting features in the cemetery. Local folklore tells of the witch’s grave. Maria Baldwin died giving childbirth on Feb 10, 1863 and the baby, Maria Louise, died a few months later on Sept 15, 1863. Both were laid to rest in the churchyard. The gravestone was imported from the Toronto area and within a year it turned black. During the 1980’s and 1990’s rumour's spread throughout the area that she was a witch. There used to be a chain around the head stone. It is said that whoever should step inside the chain would be cursed. Over time the chain that was around the grave had corroded and was taken away...but the poles still remain.

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


Science has shown that the tombstone actual turned black because of the effects of acid rain on the sandstone. Yup... that's me standing in the space of the so called curse. I'm just a person that believes that science rules over superstitions. Besides, if Maria Baldwin were a witch she would never have been buried in an Anglican churchyard.
