EIGHT DIFFERENT POSTCARDS
Front side full color photograph, reverse side black and white.

1- BLOORDALE BEACH & SHARED SPACE SIGNS
These are signs found on the fence surrounding Toronto’s Bloordale Beach—a landlocked oasis that exists for the sake of repurposing otherwise wasted land, for creating shortcuts, and for the sake of humour, too.

Caption:
Bloordale Beach was officially inaugurated on May 25, 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and has made social/physical distancing a real pleasure during these unprecedented times. It’s a great place to relax, sunbathe, and forage for weeds, and is proudly Toronto’s only beach with a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation. The thing about Bloordale Beach is it’s totally a real beach, with live killdeer and actual sand.

2- BLOORDALE BEACH (NO SHARED SPACE SIGN)
Classic Bloordale Beach sign is here, right in the middle of the big, beautiful beach.

3- LINGER SIGNS
Linger signs adorn the fence surrounding Toronto’s Bloordale Beach—a landlocked oasis that exists for the sake of repurposing otherwise wasted land, for creating shortcuts, and for the sake of humour, too.

Caption:
Bloordale Beach was officially inaugurated on May 25, 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Originally, the beach was surrounded by words of warning, conveying messages that were a deterrent for some, so it was a relief when Linger signs popped up in their place. As a result of the more positive messages and sentiments, many more visitors have flocked to the beach to enjoy the peaceful ambiance and dip a toe into Bloordale Lagoon, which always appears after a heavy rainfall.

4- VARIOUS SIGNS
These are signs found on the fence surrounding Toronto’s Bloordale Beach.

Caption:
Bloordale Beach opened in Toronto’s west end on May 25, 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and was declared to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site after not too long. Though swimming conditions aren’t always great, it’s one of the city’s best spots for social distancing. Plus, it’s totally a real beach, with gorgeous sunsets and actual sand.

5- BEACH SUNSET
Bloordale Beach is absolutely dreamy in the evening.

Caption:
Bloordale Beach is utopia in Toronto’s west end, just a stone’s throw from Dufferin Mall. The sand is gorgeous and plant life is abundant. While surfing and sailing are appealing activities, catching a gorgeous beach sunset is among the most popular pastimes of visitors to this paradise.

6- POOL AT THE BEACH
There was once a pool at the beach, temporarily

Caption:
Some visit Bloordale Beach for a dip in the lagoon while others prefer to relax by the pool. No matter which option you choose, it’s always worth spending time at this magical place in Toronto’s west end.

7- BEACH TRAILER
In October 2020, a trailer appeared on the beach.

Caption:
Bloordale Beach, an oasis in Toronto’s west end, was once home to an open concept trailer — a chic and breezy space where visitors could relax in the shade and play a game of cards when divers weren’t using it to change into their wetsuits.

8- BLOORDALE MEADOW
This is a postcard for Toronto’s Bloordale Meadow. It’s right next to Bloordale Beach. It’s a piece of land that is also referred to as a school field. It’s located at Bloor and Dufferin, in Toronto.

The caption says it all:
Bloordale Meadow is a vast grass-filled space, formally named in May 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Though centrally located, this pastoral setting seems miles and miles away from the nearest Taco Bell or Beer Store. It’s a space perfectly suited for flocks of grazing sheep, but is most adored by local dogs, wanderers, sleepyheads, and people who like to spend a few minutes kicking a soccer ball before heading over to Bloordale Beach.
