Doors Open London; in Pictures.

by

I went out Saturday to take in the annual Doors Open here in London, hitting mostly downtown locations. During my travels I took lots of pictures, here are some of them. Enjoy.

Delta London Armouries Hotel

The first stop on the tour was the Delta Armouries hotel. Much of the original 1905 brick work has been preserved and the overall tone of the new portions take the unique heritage of the armouries now hotel into account.


Canadian Medical Hall of Fame

The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame has plenty of plaques, though I would be more interested in seeing more medical artifacts like the pacemaker feature.


One London Place

A ride up to see the city, and a tour of the mechanical room.

London Life Insurance Company

The smallest of the day, consisting of a room with vintage posters.

Dominion Public Building

From the Egyptian inspired bronze work, to the massive chandeliers, the detail that went into this building is amazing.

The Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel Laboratory

The longest tour of the day, barred from taking pictures inside the lab. I honestly expected more from the tour, like an acctual demonstration of the tunnel.
