Afternoon in the Distrillery District

Afternoon in the Distillery District, Toronto. This revitalized neighbourhood contains a number of buildigns that used to be part of a historic Gooderham & Worts distillery with a number of buildings on the site being amongst the oldest in Toronto. Over the last many years this area has been converted into an upscale strip of shops and theatres and it certainly worth checking out if you've not been or if you come to see Toronto ever :)

Information about this old company can be found here.

Nice shot! Makes me want to go there. (I keep hearing about it, but I've never actually been.) smile

It does look nice, somewhere with interesting buildings that have been nicely renovated and also with shops I can dream of buying something from!

I've never heard of that distillery, what was it they made?
Iain Myrans: According to Wikipedia, they were the world's largest manufacturer of whisky in the late 1800s. The most interesting article about the firm I found after you asked this is located at http://www.frymybacon.com/articles/articles.php?article_ID=44

Thanks Iain, I meant to get back to you sooner to say I read everything in that article. Isn't it amazing how things change so quickly, and also how things such as moving parts of the docks had such a bad effect on the business. smile
