Garage Math: 1 + 4

20 January 2016 – Let’s start with the 1.

It’s a single garage wall, tucked toward the back of some open space by the south/west corner of Spadina & Dupont, but you notice it anyway.

That’s just a bonus.

It’s the 4 — the four sides of a sway-backed garage toward the front of the space — that really inspire you to go walk-about.

Down the east side, which commands attention despite some scrawls & whatever that is, leaning against it …

then around the back, seriously loopy …

for a major reward, spread across the building’s doors and north (street) face.

Veterans of this blog may remember that cat face, I’ve shown it before.

This time, let’s enjoy the whole building. Plus its backdrop.

4 + 1.

    It would be good to learn more about the shed’s artist(s) and history. Nigel
