Castle Memorial Hall

Castle Memorial Hall is located on Bloor St and is part of the Royal Conservatory of Music. It was built in 1901 and at that time contained a chapel and a library but through the years has had various different uses. In 1996 it underwent an extensive restoration and now houses a concert hall that is used for smaller events than the large hall at the conservatory. It was also renamed the Mazzoleni Concert Hall after a former principal of the conservatory.

That entrance does have a "chapel" look to it. I love seeing places like this given a new life.

You have some very beautiful old buildings in your city and this is one of them. I like the slight curve of wear in the center of the steps.
