The Don Jail

Last weekend, I lined up for four hours with several thousand others to get a peek inside the Don Jail. The jail is one of only about a dozen buildings dating from the 1860s which are still standing on original siting in Toronto. Due to the huge volume of visitors to the open days, my look around the jail was very short and rushed. It was tough to get any kind of appreciation for the atmosphere of the place during such an accelerated tour. Maybe I'll get to go back inside again - there are more tours later this summer. Check back here soon because I'll going to be posting the story of one of the most exciting episodes in the history of the Don Jail.
