Grandeur At The Exhibition

This is the Ontario Government building found on the Exhibition grounds. It was built in 1926 to provide space for provincial government displays during the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) but since 2000 it has been used as the Liberty Grand, an event and banquet space. The Beaux Arts building underwent extensive restoration in 2001 and is beautiful inside. I'll show you some more of it tomorrow.

What a beautiful building. It reminds me of some the exhibition buildings that remain in Chicago and St. Louis.
