On a hot and sunny Sunday, June 10, the inaugural James Ellis Heritage Toronto Walk took place in the Junction. Three guides, including the Society’s Neil Ross and David Wencer, along with architectural enthusiast Christopher Sears, led sections of the large crowd. Highlights included our Annette Library, and the Junction Shul, Congregation Knesseth Israel, both designed by Junction architect James Ellis. Starting at Keele and Dundas, the guides spent a couple of hours illuminating Junction public and domestic architecture of the 1800s and 1900s on Annette, High Park and Dundas, ending with an inside tour of the Junction Shul.
