Continuing on with my wanderings around Toronto. This is Old City Hall, a Romanesque civic building that housed city council from 1899-1966, and which today serves as a courthouse. It stands near the New City Hall, which is far less picturesque.
A short walk away lies Osgoode Hall, which has its roots dating back to 1828 as a law school, and also serves in other legal capacities, hosting courts at a higher level and a law library. It has been expanded on over time.
To the west lies University Avenue, a wide street that hosts a number of monuments on the traffic islands that make up the middle of the street. Here, with the iconic Canada Life Building at left, is the South African War Memorial, designed by Walter Allward, who years later would create the Vimy Memorial in France.
A historic plaque is near the base commemorating Allward. Apparently it contains a mistake, as Emanuel Hahn actually studied under him as opposed to the other way around.
