52 Metcalfe Street
I was looking up old pictures and came across this one. This is a picture of 52 Metcalfe Street in Toronto. My first home when I moved out on my own. Metcalfe is a small street in Cabbagetown here in Toronto, and this building was renovated into apartment units. My apartment was # 109, downstairs.
I moved out on my own after my daughter was born. One week after to be exact! If you look closely at the side of the building - the above grade window was my daughter's bedroom window. The unit was tiny! They billed it as a Jr. 1bdrm. In fact it was a bachelor with an alcove - where the crib and dressers were (the room with the window)
It was truly a dump. lol BUT - it was my very first place! And I do have many good memories here. (Many not so great ones too...)
Anyhow .... Just thought I would share this blast from the past. :)
