The Palace of Purification

Best Friends, originally uploaded by Michael Mitchener.

Those of you who know me, know that I like to visit and photograph the Waterworks at the end of the Beach - a lot. More formally known as the R. C. Harris Water Treatment Plant, this facility supplies Toronto with over 45% of its drinking water and has done so since it opened its beautiful Art Deco doors in 1941.

More importantly, it is possibly the best place in Toronto to walk your dog with lots of beach, steep hills and a view to die for. If you haven't been, treat yourself and your furry pal, and make the trip. Check out my Waterworks Collection for a sample of what you'll see. You'll find this treasure where Queen Street East meets Victoria Park and trust me, you won't be disappointed.
