Vancouver City Hall


Vancouver City Hall under construction in 1936.



Vancouver City Hall today.



Nothing says City Hall like a pointing bronze statue. In this case it is Captain George Vancouver of the English Royal Navy who sailed into English Bay in 1792 and put what would become Vancouver on the map. Of course the First Nations (Canada's aboriginal people) had been here for 10,000 years first.

Photo #1 from Vancouver.ca and #2 & #3 are from GreaterVancouverParks.com

Brilliant thread!

^I think it sounds weird, but I have never seen the city hall of New York before, I wonder why it is so infamous.
It looks very beautiful, but doesn't looks big at all despite being in USA:s largest city. May be it has some high rise extensions in the surroundings?

In some cities in Sweden there is a difference between City hall (stadshus) and town hall (rådhus).


Old Town Hall of Malmö.


City Hall (Stadshuset) is modern, but very ugly.


Helsingborg Town Hall.


Stockholm City Hall.


Copenhagen Town Hall.

Nightsky, can You read? In this topic we share city hall from city where we live, so You should share city hall only from Malmo, not from other cities.
