Saint Patrick


A look at one of the subway stations on the (limited) network of Toronto. You can't really tell from this photo, but the tiles in this station are an ugly green colour. Although it's not a nice green, no other colour will do for Saint Patty's!

But that begs the question of why did they name a subway station after him?

Okay, never mind, I just checked the map - it's near St Patrick St. :D

Is there a big celebration there on March 17th?

I've been away for a few day and am trying to catch up!!

Where's the people?

St. Patty's? St. Pat's Day? St. Pat's subway. Oh, I just read the comment above. There's a St. Patrick street. Why? :-)

I didn't notice the green until I read your post. Interesting shade.

Lowell - there is also a St George and St Andrew - but sadly, no St David.
The tile colour is a bit nauseous, though I like it for a subway station. strange, eh?! the tunnel look of the station is cool.

Ugly green or not you are lucky to have public transportation that works!

It is always a shade of green...

You sure had me confused. I googled St Patrick and St Patrick to see if Canada celebrated The Day differently.

I think it looks rather retro!

I agree...they had to be green. genie

Nice perspective.

@Olivier - on n'as que deux lignes de metro a Toronto. Je trouve cela deplorable pour une ville de cette taille. En plus, c'est tres cher pour les usagers.

the lighting in the stations make getting the exact shade of disturbing green difficult!

Looks like our own underground stations! :-)

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
