Fire Station #10 in Yorkville - 1878; Toronto oldest active Fire Hall. Taller ladder will be required soon.......

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Yorkville Fire Department, 1878. It is the city's oldest active fire hall. The two-storey structure has a five-storey clock tower with three bays. Used to be one of the tallest structure in Yorkville, when I arrived in Toronto. Look at it now!

The only problem, they have to get a much bigger ladder!!


Fire Hall #10 (now 312), has a coat of arms from the old Yorkville Town Hall. It was restored in 1974.


Certain places in can be photographed only in certain time. The sun is rare here, because of the tall buildings. The advantage of a local photographer being, that you can revisit.

I see that you are catching up with the sights you missed. This was not included in the Oakville sightseeing, right?

Great view of the old and new. ~+~+~+~ LIKE! / GEFÄLLT MIR! ~+~+~+~+~ Jürgen grüßt Dich aus Frankfurt am Main / Jürgen says hello from Frankfurt-upon-Main (Germany)
