Sights of the Danforth

Share |

When you're walking along the Bloor Viaduct you can stop and "read the scene
of the nun falling off the bridge, which is so iconic in Canadian literature." (Miranda Hill, Founder and Executive Director of Project Bookmark Canada). It is also fitting that the plaque for In the Skin of a Lion is right on the Danforth, a multiethnic area of the City, since the book is a re-creation of the early immigrant experience in Toronto. People stop to rest and relax at this fountain in the Alexander the Great Parkette.
