It’s one of my favourite buildings in this region.
Isn’t it great? The surrounding neighbourhood is very nice as well.
This building just captures my imagination. It’s like it’s coming right out of a story. Also, it sits right in the middle of a neighbourhood of single-family homes of a comparable vintage. That’s how all neighbourhoods should be – diverse!
Agreed! Diversity makes things so much more interesting.
Love the architecture & neighbourhood! Pre-modernist and jazz-age…always loved it, until…
Sad note: my good friend ( ex-girlfriend from teenage years) lived in this apartment for 17 years, slowly losing her good health. Mis-diagnoses and forensic medicine revealed heavy-metal poisoning from bad pipes, accumulated metals/lead-poisoning!
Now recovering, slowly, moved around the corner…yoga, raw-food diet, chelation therapy. Strange context to see it here.
One of the hazards of old buildings (along with faulty wiring, etc.)
I hope they have replaced the plumbing!
I like the way you show the building from a distance and then close in on a part of it. The post with the pharma building is cool like that too.
Thank you, Kelly. I really enjoy photographing buildings.
Great photos! My great grandfather and great grandmother lived in apartment 10 at Carlton Court in the 1970’s. Brings back great memories of my visits with them when I was very young.
