Carrying on with where I left off yesterday. The Canada Life Building was built between 1929-31 as a headquarters for the insurance company. It is in the Beaux-Arts style.
Historic plaques caught my eye as I went along the street, including this one.
This house stands nearby. Campbell House dates to 1822 in the Georgian style, and was moved here to its present location. It was built for Upper Canada Chief Justice William Campbell and his wife, and today houses a local history museum.
On the grounds outside Campbell House are stone fragments of old Toronto, derived from buildings being demolished back in the 1960s and 1970s.
A short walk away I took in a good viewpoint of a newer iconic piece of architecture, the CN Tower. This view is from Queen Street, one of the larger east-west streets in this part of the city.
Heading back the way I came, this building caught my eye. The Rex is a jazz and blues club along Queen.
