PDP #130: The Edge of Etobicoke

The Humber Bay Arch Bridge is, in my opinion, one of the better unsung features of Toronto's architecture. Its position, spanning the Humber River just north of Lake Ontario, is such that the average person's only experience with it is seeing it in their peripheral vision while they speed down the Gardiner.

Last month I posted a photo from within the span itself. This photo is looking the opposite direction, from Etobicoke into Toronto. I didn't realize at the time that the Queen Elizabeth Way Monument, that crown-topped obelisk to the left of the bridge, was visible in this shot. It's yet another thing many Torontonians seem to not be aware of.
