Photographer's Note

The Legislative Assembly of Ontario is located in Toronto, in a park called Queen's Park. The Legislative Building sits on the former site of King's College (the institution that eventually became the University of Toronto). The building was loaned to the province by the university on a 999 year lease.
Designed by Buffalo, New York architect Richard A. Waite, the five-storey building was completed in 1893. Waite used the Richardsonian Romanesque style to take advantage of its iron-frame construction to devote an uncharacteristically large area to windows.
Statues to the south of the legislative building include those of Canada's first Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald, educational reformer George Brown, Queen Victoria, and the 6th Premier of Ontario Sir James Whitney.
