Toronto's Beautiful Ruins

Toronto is a beautiful city. Compared to other cities in North America our streets are squeaky clean, our downtown area is alive, vibrant and well kept and our avenues are lined with trees which soften the hard, hot concrete cityscape. In fact, Toronto is so well kept that one must search quite hard to find the nooks that have been swept to the wayside and have been left to fall into disrepair or even abandonment. I am making it my mission to discover as many of these lost places as possible, because even in ruin, Toronto is beautiful.

Warning: Photo heavy entry

These photos were taken at a church somewhere in the Little Italy area which burned down in the 90's. According to the local tale the ruins still stand because there are rumors that it was arson linked to a homicide/suicide at UofT involving a professor who was the church treasurer...

Check back occasionally for more of Toronto's Lost Spaces as I am going to attempt to make this a semi regular series.
