Category: SIGNS, Toronto


The Distillery District in Toronto is the site of the old Gooderham and Worts distillery with the Victorian buildings now converted into studios, restaurants and galleries. The pedestrian only lanes have all been named for the buildings’ previous incarnations. And there is an on-site brewery with a very popular restaurant. You can see an interactive map here.

Participating in signs, signs
