Picking up where I left off, the Four Seasons Centre For The Performing Arts is home to the Canadian Opera Company and the National Ballet of Canada. I passed by it walking back towards the City Hall area. Posters for upcoming productions were on a wall.
I came back to Nathan Phillips Square, the space out on the south part of the Toronto City Hall complex. From here I photographed Old City Hall from a different angle, with the reflecting pool at left. The square is named for a former mayor of the city (and may such an honour never be bestowed upon the late crack smoking boozehound former mayor of the city, Rob Ford, who at last report was burning in hell, complaining about the lack of crack, prostitutes, and booze).
Then I moved a few metres further and photographed New City Hall with the Toronto sign. No doubt this same view is photographed millions of times in a given year.
There's a stage set up in the square. A couple of performers were on it while I was here. There were a good more people in the square than this shot might let on.
I still vastly prefer Old City Hall. The architecture is more appealing. There's more of a sense of history to this building, of grandeur. A ghost story or two lying within certainly adds to all that.
A war memorial stands out on the south side of the building commemorating those who have fallen in war and in military service.
Some of the details in the architecture are astonishing. Have a look at those faces up near the top of this shot.
Back in the Eaton Centre, this shirt in a shop caught my eye.
And in a nearby subway station, bas relief carvings were on the walls. Tomorrow we have a look inside the Church Of The Holy Trinity.
