I have always been appreciative of things that are a bit out of the ordinary.
Here are some examples that I recently came across while walking from Dupont to St. Patrick station (I thought it was about time I saw the route ABOVE ground).
This route takes you along Spadina Road/Spadina Avenue down to Dundas and St. Patrick station.
I first came across this mural at the Norman B. Gash House, which is the northeast entrance to Spadina Station.
Outside the station:
I took a detour on Madison Avenue (near Spadina & Bloor) and saw this at a frat house. Look on the roof!
Somebody’s initiation?…or drunken escapade?
Back on Spadina Avenue. Isn’t Ronald McDonald a little creepy to be the face of a multinational corporation? …or maybe that’s why he’s so perfect.
Interesting mural at Spadina and College.
If you like, you can take a detour to Kensington Market once you pass College on Spadina. Of course you can always count on Kensington Market for tons of awesomely weird stuff.
I don’t know the name of this store, but it’s on Kensington Avenue near St. Andrew street. I would personally like to have all of the clothing in that store.
Nearby is a place called “The King of Kensington.” It is a gentleman’s shop where you can acquire vintage clothing, shoes, hats, pinball machines, cameras, replica guns, etc. Here is a little display I spotted on one of their shelves.
Down the street is the Kensington Lodge, which has what I think is the coolest paint job on any house I have ever seen.
If you go down a back alley in Kensington, you might see this.
See the rabbit on the wall?
I turned onto Dundas and started going eastbound towards St. Patrick station. That is when I came across this…place.
I am really not sure what’s going on in there. Does anyone know…???
Happy Friday to all!
