Photographer's Note

This is the front entrance to the city hall. It was built in the 1960s, when the 'Brutalist' style, with its unfinished concrete surfaces, few heavily recessed windows, was popular in Ontario. Brantford is a small town, about 100 km west of Toronto with about 100,000 inhabitants, The town is named after Chief Joseph Brant (1743-1807), a Mohawk Indian who fought on the British side of the American Revolutionary war, and settled in Canada. I put a picture of a plaque into the Workshop, it stands near the city hall and describes the founding of Brantford.
This was the first time I visited this city, and was very impressed with it, I will post a few more pictures of its nice buildings and gardens.
