Wordless Wednesday - Spadina House

One of my favourite museums, and places to visit in Toronto!

Spadina House (built 1866) is a historic manor on Spadina Road in Toronto, Canada that is now a museum; signs directing traffic and pedestrians to the house now call it Spadina Museum.

It was built by James Austin, founder of The Dominion Bank and Consumers Gas, on land that had previously been owned by Toronto's noted Baldwin family. In the nineteenth and early twentieth century the area was the wealthiest in Toronto, with a number of Toronto's leading families having large estates.

I'd love to visit that museum. Of course, I'd love to visit anywhere in Canada; I've never been there.
