One Love

One Love, One Heart, One Destiny – Bob Marley

  
In Toronto’s historic Distillery District you will find this love-lock structure. 

It’s an obvious copy of the idea in Paris where lovers expressed their passion and (presumably) their commitment by attaching a lock to the Pont des Arts and tossing the key into the river. This purpose built structure is designed to hold the weight of the love-locks, unlike Paris where last June officials had the locks removed for fear that the extra weight would compromise the bridge.  

Perhaps not quite as romantic as the Paris love-locks (and just a little contrived), I still think Toronto’s version is charming.  But I wonder…. Where to they toss the keys?

    Nice place. I just could imagine how much of the love energy is at this place. If all the people would share love no hate we would live in a harmony!

    …we saw bridges in Paris nearly crumbling from the weight of locks so I’m glad that has stopped…much better this way to see the locks shaped into the word love!

      It’s a clever solution, for sure. I’m glad you liked it. 😊
