Description

From behind its cast-iron gates, this building resembles the front of a Royal Palace somewhere in the British Empire—and it's definitely out of place amid the hustle and bustle of Queen West, the Eaton Centre and New City Hall. Originally built in 1829 to house the Law Society of Upper Canada and the courts, the structure took almost 20 years to finish. The fact it went through several architects is evident in the mixture of styles—from Palladian for the layout to Italian Renaissance for the decorative details.
