Photographer's Note

This red-brick building is one of Toronto's historic landmark, located at the triangular intersection at Front and Wellington Streets in downtown Toronto. This is the first of the famous flatiron buildings in North-America, it was built in 1892 in Romanesque style. There is nice terracotta ornamentation on the frieze and above the arched windows, an example is shown in the Workshop. It was the head office of the Gooderham & Worts distillery until 1952, they sold it in 1957, since then several different clients rented office space in the building. Also visible on the picture two other notable buildings, on the left the 53 storey Canada Trust tower which is part of the Brookfield Place development, and the white 57 storey CIBC tower of the Commerce Court complex on the right.
