Steel Doors


These super stainless steel doors were designed by artist Charles Comfort for the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSE) building on Bay St which was built in 1937 - hence their great Art Deco design. That building has been restored and turned into the Design Exchange and the TSE moved to a modern building on King St in 1983 taking this set of doors, which was found to be redundant in the 1st building, with them. The scenes on each medallion represent various aspects of the Canadian economy.

I'm trying to imagine aspects of the Canadian economy - there are far more on the doors than I can conjure up. I must go and educate myself.
