Haunted on Spadina

This well preserved Victorian building in downtown Toronto on Spadina avenue just north of College street is reputed to be haunted by the victim of an axe murder. Apparently the hatchet marks are still visible on one of the doors. This would have been a much cleaner view back in the horse and buggy era, but now we camera enthusiasts contend with electrical wires and streetcar infrastructure.

Strangely, 'Haunted' came to mind when I first looked at this !

Shame about the wires, we all have to put up with them. I really like this building and your info into the murder there.
