Photographer's Note

These two pictures were taken from the Jennifer Kateryna Kovalskyj Park, near the east end of Toronto. The park is in the Port Land area and named after a 6 year old girl who died tragically while trying to protect her grandmother from a madman.

The top picture shows an approximately one km section of the shoreline from the Westin Habour Castle Hotel to the Sugar Beach Park, just east of the Redpath Sugar Refinery. Two major landmarks are visible on this picture, the CN TV tower, completed in 1976, and the Royal York Hotel near the right edge of the picture. This hotel was the tallest building in the British Empire when it was completed in 1929. The tallest building on this pictures are all residential buildings, the tallest is the Harbour Plaza Residences East, it has 70 floors.

The other picture follows the shoreline to the east with a small overlap. On its left side the financial district is visible. The tallest building here is the white one, it is still the tallest building in Canada, 355 m tall, built in 1975. The tall building on the right side of the picture is the 44-story Monde, I have show this building photographed from Sherboure Common in a previous post.
