This old Victorian-era row house on St. Patrick Street, in the heart of Toronto, Canada, has been cut in half with surgical precision. The house is numbered 54 1/2, although the bizarre numbering is only a coincidence and was not assigned to reflect the house’s dismembered state.

The house was originally built between 1890 and 1893, and was once one of six identical and structurally interconnected homes on what was then known as Dummer Street. The houses were numbered pretty strange —52 1/2, 54, 54 1/2, 56, 58, and 60. House number 54 1/2 is the only one still standing, or rather, half of what originally was that’s still standing. All the rest are gone, taken away by a real estate developer.
