The tower's tall enough, but the vertical lines of the brickwork, windows, and pinnacles make it appear to be even taller.
There's a matched set of five of these on Jervis, just behind Queen of Apostles School.
This is called a children's garden, but I can't see anything that would interest most children. The odd sort of obelisk on a cart is actually rather interesting. I'll post more pictures some other time.

I'll presume the poorly designed mess on the left is meant to be a flag for Lucas County. It's not Toledo's. That one's quite good. Local flags designed by contest or by committee usually end up being just plain silly.

This is really quite nice if you can ignore what's been done to the top of the tower. It's on Segur, a few blocks off Broadway.
It's in very good shape, but could use a bit of extra attention.
The windows seem to be of high quality.
Someone seems to have gotten a bit out of hand with the paint.
The brickwork in that arch is very well done. Reminds me of the doors at Immaculate Conception.
There's one of these eagles over each of the large, arched windows og this gem, at Broadway and Segur. I'll post more details in a day or two.
