A Neat Old Building : 16 Ryerson Avenue





When I got home, I began wondering about it, since it really looks quite different from everything else around it. so a few days later I went back and saw this plaque which I hadn't noticed before.



 



This building has been classified as a heritage site, so it can never be torn down, and was built as a bakery and stables in 1902.  It is currently owned by a theatre troupe called Theatre Passe Muraille, who have a very interesting story themselves.  They bought the building in 1976 and converted it into two stages.  You can read more about them here
