20170717. The mid-century expressionist St. Peter’s Estonian Lutheran Church. Note the very unusual angled walls with the apex at the middle of the facade, consisting of english garden bond split-brickwork with heading courses inserted every 6th course and alternating courses of recessed and protruding brick.

20170710. The 1910 S.F. Bowser and Company Factory, producer of oil tanks, has Edwardian Classical features including a flat roof, less ornate corbelled brickwork and piers, and flat-headed windows (39 Mowat Avenue).

20170709. A massive Mammoet self-propelled modular transport (with three 6 axle line modules) supports the new Wilkinson Eyre-designed Eaton Centre pedestrian bridge as it is fastened in place.

The Mammoet SPMT is capable of hydraulic self-loading, tilting and road camber leveling. Each axle (two per axle line) is entirely independent allowing for 360 degrees of rotation and axle comensation which keeps the trailer level at all times. These modules can be hooked into a train or up to five trailers wide.
