Archives

This is the City of Toronto Archives building which is located just down the hill from Casa Loma on Spadina Rd (just in behind the trees I showed you on Sunday). It was built in 1992 and holds government & non government records as well as over 1 million pics of the city. The building has climate controlled records, an atrium & exhibit space, a theatre, and a research hall. You can look up info on every building in the city. That is the City of Toronto flag flying on the pole.

How fine the Toronto has an Archive to maintain its history and all those photographs.

It's a nice looking piece of architecture Pat, like the touch of the dome on top. Wouldn't it be fabulous to see some of those photos ✨

In all those millions there must be one or two very special photo's. The art is to bring them out.

It is a very unusual building, a mixture of styles. Quite striking.
