This is a very beautiful, Richardsonian Romanesque style architecture, building and an iconic landmark of the City of Toronto. It was constructed over the 1889 to 1899 period and acted as the Toronto’s city hall from 1899 to 1965. During that period, parts of the...More

I took photos outside the Old City Hall and nearby square where the Toronto Sign stood. The water feature next to the Sign provided an opportunity to take a photo of part of the Old City Hall and the Toronto Sign.

Old city hall is now court rooms. The building stands out against the local modern buildings. Scoot around to the north side to realize that there is a central courtyard.

i wish we could have gone inside but it's closed on weekends. It's really big and takes up a couple of blocks. We did a self walking tour and it's close to new city hall as well.

A grand old building surrounded by new structures. Check out the gargoyles just up by the roof. A nice stone makeup contrasting to the concrete and glass buildings around.

And its a lovely contrast to the new city hall across the road. You have to check out the detailing on its facade, and the gargoyles. You get a great view of the side from the Nathan Phillips Square.

The new city hall is so modern and advanced and the old city hall is exactly opposite, majestic and royal it looks right next to the new one and the view from the Nathan Philips Square is awesome.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with

Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
