West of the Allan Road, Eglinton Avenue West takes on various characters. Traditionally a largely Italian neighborhood, other cultures, such as Caribbean and Chinese, are also making inroads.

I took a walk along Eglinton Avenue West, west of the Allan Road, on a dreary overcast day in April. The weather forecast for the day was sun. But the sun didn't appear until later in the day. In color, these photos were rather boring. Desaturating the photos makes them a bit more interesting, in my opinion.
