Alexandra Gate on Avenue Road ca 1901
I've finally started categorizing the historic Toronto Photos I've been geo-tagging, and used the Alexandra Gates on Bloor Street near the ROM as a sample while I get the code working as I'd like.

Built in 1901, they originally stood on the south side of Bloor at Avenue Road, but you can see all the details and a variety of sketches and photos on the Historic Alexandra Gates in Toronto webpage. Here's a wonderful postcard looking north through the gates around 1901:

On the left is the estate of Albert Nordheimer Jr., and on the right is the Church of the Redeemer. You can see the full sized version of this image on Wikimedia Commons
