Smiling city of Toronto or Toronto through Fisheye lens...

To the east of the Nathan Phillips Square is the Toronto’s Old City Hall, which is now a courthouse for the Ontario government.
Old City Hall was home to its city council from 1899 to 1966 and remains one of the city's most prominent structures. It has a distinctive clock tower (103 m) and the largest bell, named Big Ben weighs more than 5000 kg….
Work on the Romanesque Revival building designed by Toronto architect Edward James Lennox began in 1889. When it opened on September 18, 1899 it was the largest building in Toronto, and the largest municipal building in North America. Later Lennox designed Casa Loma and the King Edward Hotel. Old City Hall was declared a National Historical Site by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada in 1989.
