Photographer's Note

Old City Hall, celebrated its centennial birthday in September 1999. This was in fact Torontos third City Hall and took almost 20 years to plan and complete. The stone used to construct the building is a blend of grey stone from the Credit River Valley in Ontario and brown stone from New Brunswick. It took more than 1,360 train-car loads to deliver the stones and 8,354 barrels of cement to complete construction. Old City Hall was declared a National Historic Site by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada in 1989. (City of Toronto website.)
