Exploring Toronto’s Neighbourhoods II: Yonge & Eglinton and Sorel Etrog
The kids’ first Toronto Tuesdays outing with Papa took them uptown to Yonge & Eglinton. They headed up Yonge past the Yonge-Eglinton Centre to the Postal Station K at the corner of Broadway, a beautiful old building with carved lions and unicorns on the facade. A sign said that they’d find a Canada Post Kids Zone inside. Intrigued, they ventured in but found the place mainly empty–empty counters and desks. There were a few display cases of collectible stamps and postage supplies. One of the staff, a woman from Bogota, Columbia, explained that the building had been sold off by Canada Post and will no longer be a post office within the next six months. She kindly spent some time showing all the different stamps for sale to Bea and Tobes and made them a sheet with every kind of stamp and postal sticker (“Airmail”, “Priority Courier”). They picked up a tiny mailbox decorated with images from baby animal stamps and a pack of U.S. stamps with baby porcupines on them.
