(no more TTC for me sadly, I use GO now)


A few of the many crappy waterfront condos



McCaul Cigar Store

(now closed)
(obviously)

Broken granite walls in completely dry fountains beside memorial

(sad isn't it)


Torn poster/ad


Disintegrated posters


Posters removed completely

Does Toronto means "City with no Name"?

It is a reference to Futurama.

"I am the man with no name. Zapp Brannigan, at your service."

Also a reference that to the fact Toronto is frequently used to portray US cities in TV shows and movies.

You call it 'The City With No Name' and then identify it by it's name
Nice photos, though

edit: Okay I just read your post immediately before mine, I understand now :p
