This bank was notable for its Beaux-Arts style and aluminium-clad dome. Upon completion in 1906, it served as a banking house (latterly a Toronto Dominion bank) with offices rented to professionals on the upper floor until 1989. The building was fully restored to serve as the new headquarters for the Toronto Historical Board in 1993. Creator's numeric designation: sheet no. range [1831-1925].
