When the autumn weather turns the leaves to gold

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

I was visiting my old neighbourhood, the trees grew a bit in the 11 years. It is only 1/2 hour by bike from my current house, but I do not visit often.

These grounds used to be Psychiatric facility with a park and beautiful buildings from the 1890's - approx. Until about 15 years ago this you could meet here "Gordon Lightfoot" (canadian singer) or "Marilyn Monroe" as I did. This was an exciting place - an outpatient psychiatric Hospital! The people were harmless, but you never know....

It was almost destroyed, but fortunately the neighbourhood protested (I was at several meetings 20 years ago) and the park area and most of the buildings were saved. I am not completely happy how the buildings were renovated and the additional modern building that were erected, but still better then the alternative!

There are now 4 images of this alley in my gallery.
