“Tankhouse Lane” – Toronto Distillery District
“Every doorway, every intersection has a story.”- Katherine Dunn
For any who have not had the opportunity to visit Toronto, there is a wonderful area which used to be the Gooderham and Worts distillery. After the distillery ceased operations, the early 19th century buildings were preserved and it has become a popular destination filled with shops, restaurants, and art galleries. It’s a place I visit at least once a year and always offers me new images.
This year I went, like last year, on my birthday, hoping to spot some new artifact, piece of architecture, and just enjoy the sights and atmosphere, as well as a good meal.
These street signs were installed to help navigate through all the side streets and alleyways, each representing the principal building which stands along that route. It helps give a sense of how things flowed back when the distillery was still active. It was the light that drew my eye to this sign as well as an image of New York Street signs I saw a few weeks ago.
