Doors of South Granville: The Casandra

A Photo Series by Helena McMurdo


I've always loved this building and have friends and family who have lived here. The garden seems to be part of the door to me as it frames the whole thing. The shadows of the wrought iron balconies above give some indication of the rest of the architecture. I'm not sure if this building is on the heritage register or not, but it should be.
