Barrett Manor

Toronto, 2017

Casa Loma

Casa Loma was built by Sir Henry Mill Pellatt in the years leading up to World War I. Naturally, he lost his fortune trying to keep the place up, and he and his wife Lady Mary had to leave in 1923. It's reputed to be the location of Camp X, where devices for U-boat detection were deveoloped during WWII. Today it's a museum open to the public.
