A Good Reuse


I showed a shot of Castle Memorial Hall a few years ago but as I walked by it recently it was looking so good that I thought it deserved to be shown again. Built in 1901 the hall is part of the Royal Conservatory of Music and is located on Bloor St W right beside the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum). It originally contained a library and chapel but underwent an extensive restoration in 1996 and now houses a small concert hall. I love the look of the stonework.
