What direction were you facing when you took that picture of Jazz? I don't remember that condo from last Spring.

South east I believe. It's on the plot between Mutual and Dalhousie streets.

The Direct Energy Centre (formerly the National Trade Centre) is Canada's largest trade centre and a popular site during the Canadian National Exhibition.

Last year I went in there, and did a double take. It looks like a small airport terminal!

Photo #132 - Toronto Zoo

It opened in 1974 as the Metropolitan Toronto Zoo and is owned by the City of Toronto; the word 'Metropolitan' was dropped from its name when the cities of the Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto were merged to form the present-day City of Toronto. Encompassing 287 hectares (710 acres), the Toronto Zoo is the third largest in the world. It is divided into six zoogeographic regions: Indo-Malaya, Africa, the Americas, Australasia, Eurasia and the Canadian Domain. Animals are displayed indoors in tropical pavilions and outdoors in naturalistic environments, with viewing at many levels. It also has a Kids Zoo, Waterside Theatre and a Splash Island. The zoo is home to over 16,000 animals (including invertebrates and fish) representing over 491 distinct species. Pictured here, is the polar bear section of the park. This photo was not taken by me however. http://www.flickr.com/photos/bobcatnorth/40683655/

Photo #135 - Ontario Science Centre

It is built down the side of a wooded ravine formed by one branch of the Don River. Planning for the centre started in 1961 during Toronto's massive expansion of the late 1950s and 1960s. In 1964 the famous Toronto architect Raymond Moriyama[1] was hired to design the site. The innovative design, consisting of three main buildings connected by a series of bridges and escalators, follows the natural contours of the Don River ravine, into which the Centre descends. Construction started in 1966 with plans to make it a part of the city's 1967 Canadian Centennial celebrations. It was officially named the Centennial Centre of Science and Technology. However construction was not complete in 1967, and the OSC did not open to the public until two years later, in September of 1969. In 1996 the province's first OMNIMAX theatre opened in an expanded entranceway area, and additional changes soon followed.

Photo #136 - Empire Sandy

Built in 1943, the Empire Sandy is a tall ship based in Toronto. The 200 foot long ship offers sailings for the public, chartered tours, including weddings and other events, on Lake Ontario, Lake Erie and along the St. Lawrence Seaway. During the winter travels to the Caribbean. Licenced by Transport Canada to carry 275 passengers, she is Canada's largest Topsail Schooner. The Empire Sandy was one of 1,464 Empire ships built or acquired for war service by the British Government. She began serving the Great Lakes as a cruise ship in 1982, and continues to this day.
