Toronto

F/8.0, 1/250, ISO 100.

A Police officer pulled over a vehicle for speeding.

 Police officer: “Can you identify yourself, sir?”

 Driver pulls out his mirror and says: “Yes, it’s me.”

Interesting Fact: When Europeans first arrived at the site of present-day Toronto, the vicinity was inhabited by the Iroquois,[54] who by then had displaced the Wyandot people that had occupied the region for centuries before c. 1500.[55] The name Toronto is likely derived from the Iroquois word tkaronto, meaning “place where trees stand in the water”.[56] This refers to the northern end of what is now Lake Simcoe, where the Huron had planted tree saplings to corral fish. A portage route from Lake Ontario to Lake Huron running through this point, the Toronto Carrying-Place Trail, led to widespread use of the name. In the 1660s, the Iroquois established two villages within what is today Toronto, Ganatsekwyagon on the banks of the Rouge River and Teiaiagonon the banks of the Humber River. By 1701, the Mississauga had displaced the Iroquois, who abandoned the Toronto area at the end of the Beaver Wars. ( https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toronto
