A to Z Challenge: T is for Toronto (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2017 Great and Powerful 2017 Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, T is for Toronto Street!

Here is a Google map showing where Toronto Street is located in James Bay.

What I could find out about Toronto Street:

Toronto Street, one of the older streets in James Bay, runs, diagonally, from Douglas at the park to Menzies Street.   It’s kind of a shortcut for us if we are walking home from downtown, because it’s a diagonal walk.

According to http://www.victoriaheritagefoundation.ca/Neighbourhoods/jamesbayhistory.html:

“James Bay’s earliest subdivision streets were named after places in eastern North America that were familiar to the HBC officers: Superior, Huron, Michigan, Belleville, Niagara, Ontario, Kingston, Montreal, Toronto, Oswego, Erie and Quebec. ”

Today, it’s perhaps not the most interesting street in James Bay (it’s lost a lot of its older homes), but there are still some heritage houses on Toronto.

Also of interest, the Carriage House B&B is on Toronto Street (http://www.carriagehousebandb.ca/), just off Government Street.  And the James Bay Inn (http://www.jamesbayinn.com/) is at the corner of Government and Toronto.

Here are some pictures I took of Toronto Street.

The way down to Government.

And now, here we are at Government.

The Carriage House B&B

And the James Bay Inn.

And the way towards Menzies.

The end of Toronto Street.

What else do you want to know about Toronto Street?  Ask away, and I will see what I can find out for you!
