My first attempt at being domestic. I made chicken pot pie and it turned out well. I look forward to making this at future dinner parties.
York Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. 1927.
York Street, facing south, with Queen Street West and gates of Osgoode Hall in foreground
This picture has special meaning to me, because my family lived on this street. My great great grandfather and great grandfather owned a modest building on this street where they opened a diner on the ground floor. I have been told that the most expensive meal they served was a whopping 30cents! On the above floors were the apartments where the family stayed.
The buildings now have since been demolished in the 60s-70s to make way for buildings such as the Sheraton Hotel on the southeast corner of Queen and York. But the Osgoode Gates are still present if you get a chance to drive or walk by the area. Another thing that you won’t see now, and that you can faintly see in the old photograph is Lake Ontario in the backgroud at the foot of York Street.
Story of the day:
Vivian buys random french cheese
woman sees $50 in vivians purse
woman asks for $5 to “buy cheese”
vivian exits the store
woman follows vivian down the street
vivan briskly walks away..and is scared for her life….
moral of the day: never open your purse in front of a potential crackhead!"

its functional, but it looks like a total wreck.
