Illustration Sunday: 197 King Street East

Recent renovations at the ROM and OCAD have been subject to much discussion, but there’s more to Toronto than contemporary architecture. Though often overlooked, there are a variety of interesting historical buildings to be found around town. Over the next few weeks, Illustration Sunday will show you some of these buildings.
Pictured above is the building situated at 197 King Street East, in an area known as Old Town Toronto. Featuring elaborate woodworking and brick patterns, it’s an elegant, older building.
