Historical Building Toronto

10 photos of historical Toronto on Instagram

Our latest Instagram photo challenge celebrates Toronto's built heritage. In the sea of anonymous cell phone pics, once in a while a truly beautiful structure really pops out, and they also tend to benefit from the vintage filter treatment that old-school types are always so quick to take a dump on. Come on, old timers — sometimes (read a lot of the time) a quick and easy filter is just the right thing for an iPhone photo or the like. We asked our followers to take shots of their favourite historical buildings around the city and pitched in with a few of our own to boot. Add yours to the pool by using the hashtag #heritageTO.
