Stitch & Bitch, old style

Spinning, weaving and yakking in the olden days...


This is a window in the old Household Science building at the University of Toronto. There are other images of people cooking and doing domestic things, in various states of mostly modest disarray.

The place now houses a Club Monaco store, and the university Classics department!

And all thanks to Mrs Lillian Massey Treble, who gave the building in the first place!

This shows the exterior. Their facts are a bit out of date -- the ombudsman has gone, and although the pool is locked away, it's not under a false floor.
