Cabbagetown Morning

Posted by
Rick (Toronto, Canada) on 11 February 2019 in Cityscape & Urban.

A sunny morning view south on Parliament street in Toronto's Cabbagetown neighbourhood, named for the many Irish immigrants who arrived during the mid 1800s. They used to grow cabbage in their yards, you see. Neglected for many decades, the area became a hotbed of restoration and renovation during the 1970s and is now a very charming enclave of Victorian housing where the affluent and down-and-out rub elbows. A highly interesting part of the city.

What a good thing that an old neighbourhood will be so beautiful again and where it is good living.

As an Irishman, you have made my day with this image. We love our cabbages and ribs. Great to hear that some of these great buildings are being renovated. 5*
