This photo, taken several years ago, is included in the final version of Circa: An Urban Retrospect (my new book, if you haven't been here before).  It pre-dates, but after several positive comments about it from people who've seen the review copy of Circa, I decided I'd share here. 

NEWS:  Of course, there's more reason to mention Circa today.  It's currently being officially printed by the publisher and I'll be launching it February 17th at Le Petit Dejeuner in Toronto!  I've just spent most of the night fine-tuning the accompanying website (and continuing project),, which is now live...  so feel free to drop by.
