This station shares the same floor plan as well as year constructed as that of station No. 22 at Main Street.

Fire Station No. 22 87 Main Street, Toronto Dedicated in 1910 the Main street fire station is an Edwardian era building that continues to serve in its original purpose.

Pushing the Italianate look further is the low slope roof of the hose tower. Print is of a painting hand drafted and hand painted. Water color. Image area = 5.5" x 8.75"…

Fire Station No. 12 840 Gerrard Street East, Toronto. Toronto has several stellar Edwardian era fire halls but it has only one Art Deco station - 840 Gerrard. Built in 1932 it is modest compared to many other stations but it has been given just enough of a dash of style to set it apart from the rest. Print is of a painting hand drafted and hand painted (water color) with digital enhancement i.e. made darker to make for a more antique feel. I may in the future re-work this station to…

It presently serves as the 'Alumnae' theater and is operated by lady graduates of the University of Toronto as the city's oldest continuously run theater. In this archive researched painting I have restored the tower…
