We could picture the view in our sleep. We opened our eyes again: yes, it was as familiar as the lines of our own bedroom walls – but we couldn't figure out why. Smiling at our bewilderment, our scout explained that this spot on Polson Street is far and away the most popular place from which photographers shoot the Toronto skyline. The very view we were looking over has been, he said, immortalised on almost any city memorabilia we'd ever seen, so no wonder it was ingrained in our subconscious! You don't need to be a photographer to enjoy this lakeside lookout: bring a folding chair along, if you can, to sit comfortably while resting your eyes on the reassuringly recognisable panorama.
