The corner of Pape and Danforth in Toronto’s GreekTown is rather quiet at this particular moment. Besides the Royal Bank of Canada building (built in 1925) you can see the two differently styled street signs – the Pape Ave sign with white on blue and the older Danforth Av sign with black on white. There is also a smaller blue street sign with Pape Ave written in Greek along with both Canadian and Greek flags painted on the light standards.

  1. I like the old signs better.

  2. Nice shot – that’s a hefty-looking building, looking just like a bank should.

  3. Nice street photo.


  4. Beautiful shot of a building with interesting “stories” around it.

  5. This is an interesting shot. Although it was fairly quiet when you took it, there is still a lot to look at; I like it!

  6. I agree with Al, this is a bank to exudes confidence… as banks should. I prefer the look of the old street signs, but the blue ones are probably easier for motorists to see,hence safer.

  7. The building looks as if it is meant to stand the tests of time…

  8. If this is not SOOC, your processing of it is stunning. It makes me feel like I am there right now instead of looking at the image on my computer. All of the detail and color your were able to capture is wonderful. Love the shot. genie

  9. Until I read your description I wasn’t aware of the country flags painted on the lamp posts! TQ for sharing:)
