Since I got back from England, I have been running to catch up with my research schedule. As a preparation for my next book on the Buildings of Commercial Drive, I have been looking closely into the opening of Grandview and the first building boom between 1904 and 1914. It has been fascinating stuff and I’ll be presenting some of my early conclusions at the next meeting of the Grandview Heritage Group next Thursday.
However, today was a day to relax and enjoy the early sunshine. We walked the Drive, did some shopping, but mostly we hung out on the patio at Fet’s Cafe. They always make the best burgers in town, but today’s were even better than usual.
A great burger, a Guinness, warm sunshine and street cabaret — what could be better!
