Old City Hall


I love the look of Toronto's Old City Hall. It is now used as a courthouse. Although you can visit inside, you can't take photos. But there's lots of nice photo opportunities from the outside!

Magnificent overall with beautiful detail. That's what a municipal building should look like!

Your city hall really is one of the most beautiful buildings, in one of the most beautiful settings in the world.

Lovely old ornate building; I'm so glad it's still in use as a public building.

it's beautiful! how old is it?

Halcyon said...

@Tanya - building was completed in 1899. They actually wanted to tear this place down in the 60s to build a new shopping mall. :S Luckily, it was saved!

What an ornate building!

Can you imagine anyone trying to carve stone like in this century?
Nor can I. E.J Lennox is one of my favourite architects.

Randy said...

I love all of the details.

Jack said...

Oh, this one is a beauty, Halcyon.

C'mon . . . you must have good sneaky pic technique by now. Go on. Your public demands some inside shots.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
