Work took me to the centre of the universe earlier this week and I spent my few free hours hoofing it to Fort York. Along the way I ran into these guys and now I'm considering a new scale... . To my amusement, these guys even have mold lines!
Fort York was burned in 1812 (or 1813 maybe?) so these are rebuilt buildings, although many are original periods ones and some were in use into the 1930s as housing. Below you can see one of the guns pointing at the freeway built on the infill which has pushed the lakeshore back out about 500m.
I only had an hour to wander before it closed but that was a good amount of time. I saw the officer quarters (brick building on left below) but the best part was the white block house in the distance (to the right of the CN Tower). Great displays of uniforms, fire arms, cannon, maps and interactive bits. I resisted the temptations of the gift shop. I recall taking a sword on an airplane carry on in the 1980s (gotta love the north!)--I expect those days are long gone!
The rest was a fine enough walk (my first Canadian battlefield, unless you count Frenchman's Butte) and there was interesting stone work and cannon. Being in the middle of a city is a bit jarring, though.
