That sinking feeling…


Sagging houses

Houses with some serious sagging issues.


These houses are on Shaw street just south of Hallam. I believe they have looked about this “crooked” for as long as I can remember, but for some reason their respective tilts really caught my eye a few weeks ago. I am pretty sure the sagging of their foundations is due to Garrison creek running nearby, maybe even right underneath the houses. Gotta wonder what let people to build here or the city to allow construction. Then again, you see many little oddities of the built environment in Toronto…



  1. I am working on a documentary film about Lost Rivers. We are interesting in locating crooked houses due to the Garrison Creek running nearby. Where exactly on Shaw Street are these houses?
