//chimney of the former Beaver Bread bakery. Beaver Street, Toronto.

Yesterday's post, and the whirlwind of 'save the smokestack' action that happened later in the day, got me thinking of other local spots I love but will likely disappear in the years to come. The Beaver Bread bakery is a small little factory building with a lovable chimney a few blocks away. The one-story brick structure is attached to a great old house (not pictured - but maybe another day) that serves as it's offices. It was functioning as the Olympia Bakery until very recently, but the sign in the window now announces their move to Scarborough. Nearby, a real estate placard states, "SOLD". The way this city moves sometimes, that might as well read, "GONE".

EXHIBITS: This Friday night is the opening of 99 Cents, a Contact exhibit curated by blogTO. My photo, "Fancy Panties" is one of the images featured in the exhibit. Party starts at 7pm at the Show & Tell Gallery (1161 Dundas St W in Toronto).

ALSO in time for Toronto's Contact Photography Fest, my Mind's Eye series is up at Northern District Library (40 Orchard View Blvd, just N of of Yonge & Eglinton). The show runs til the end of May.
