Elmsley Hall

I've gone into my archives for a sunny fall pic since it has been so dull and grey here lately. Elmsley Hall was designed by architects Brennan & Whale and built at St Michael's College at U of Toronto in 1955. The hall serves as a men's residence and this pic shows the attached power plant and 75' tall chimney which didn't have the clock (designed by Steven Fong) installed until 2005. I can't imagine it without the clock today!

I love the style of this building and the stone it's made from. And, that clock is a perfect fit for that tower.

Applause to the clock designer. It complements the tower perfectly.

That figure on the wall really gives an idea of the size of the tower, great looking clock.

Randy said...

I like that clock design too.

The clock really does set the chimney off!

It really is well designed Pat , perfect shape and size for the tower.

I would guess the clock was exactly the right finishing touch. The building is very much "1955" but that was a good year for me and I like it very much!

I would never have suspected that this wasn't always a clock tower. I learned something today! :)

Very smart of you to look for something sunny in your archives. Thank you for lifting my spirits a tad. :))

I have seen the building before, passing through.
