20161020a. 4417 vs. 4425. Two TTC 510 Spadina Flexity streetcars (LRVs) meet at Queen and Spadina. Vehicle 4425 is the latest to enter service.
20161020b. Narrowly dodging a TTC Flexity Outlook streetcar on Queens Quay.
Ok, in reality it sits in the paint booth at the new TTC Leslie Streetcar Barns during Doors Open Toronto 2016.
Pardoning the architectural nomenclature, note:
a) how the base course on each building (the stone band running the length of the building) is at the same height;
b) the cornice of the newer building is at the same height of the older building with the additional height of the former in a different colour
c) the masonry is similar in colour and the stone bands equal in number
d) the windows are similar; and
e) although hard to see, the older building and the newer building are each trapezoidal in shape and both buildings fit into a combined trapezoid.
The result is a simple yet elegant addition to a historical building.
