Old Mill Bridge

Old Mill Bridge

The Old Mill Bridge has been an access across the Humber River since 1916. This is just a short way down from the balanced stones of this previous post. You can see from the low level water how easy it would have been to find the stones for his standing sculptures.

It is not common to see a deer in the middle of a large urban area, but this one has found a nice home in Mt Pleasant Cemetery in uptown Toronto.

standing stones

last weekend these balanced stone structures appeared in Toronto’s Humber River. They were created as a form of meditation by the artist and have been left to the vagaries of the wind and water. While I was there, three of them fell over, and several of the other 40 of them had already fallen.

the Beltline

beltline

The Toronto Belt Line Railway was a very short lived commuter railway line built in the early 1890s to promote new suburban developments. For a variety of reasons it was never successful. Eventually, the city bought the lands and a pedestrian walkway was created that followed the defunct line. Here we have the iron bridge that crosses Yonge St at the eastern edge of the beltway.
