PDP #40: A Steel Steeple

Pictured here today is the Fifth Church of Christ, Scientist, a Christian Science church on Chatsworth Drive in Lytton Park, a rather swank old-money suburb from the turn of the last century up near the North York frontier. Churches frequently have compelling architecture, and are understandably often the most ornate or well-built structures in many low-urban neighborhoods, which is exactly why this caught my attention. The steeple of this church, if you could call it a steeple, looks more to me like a radio antenna or a hydro tower with its open-frame construction.

My only complaint is that the church itself is so close to the road. If it was set a little further back into the park, I'd have been able to get wizard perspectives without nearly so much photographic contortion.
