Labour Of Love

Some of these old homes in Toronto are really pretty impressive.

This is a turn of the (last) century home in Toronto's tony Rosedale neighbourhood.

Impressive, considering the attention to detail with the brickwork on this one.

The polychromatic design must have taken workers forever.

There are the standard yellow and red bricks used here, but also a much darker brick and even a burnt looking brick.

Although these - unintentionally - burnt bricks were originally thrown away, they were soon burnt intentionally and became very popular when used as a decorative feature in some well to do homes.
