Heritage Toronto Walk- The Royal Alexandra Theatre and it's Neighborhood
Today Teena and I went on a Heritage Toronto walk featuring the Royal Alexandra Theatre and its surrounding neighborhood. The timing was great as today is the 105th anniversary of the grand opening of the theatre.
There was a large group of people which met up at Simcoe park on Front Street for the walk. Our guide today was Janet and the tour was excellent.
Evil Dead, the Musical there. At one time, it was home to our Receiver General and was a home for orphaned and poor children from Britain.
Heritage Toronto has excellent walks. I know as I have been on a few and was impressed enough to become a member. If you have a chance, take one. It's so much fun to explore the history of your own city. Here are a couple of more pictures showing the just a little detail of the outside of the theater.
