Photo #140 - Old City Hall Canada Flag

The Canada flag outside of Old City Hall. I guess I should have posted this on the first of July (Canada Day) instead of the last of July.

Photo #144 - Massey Hall

Massey Hall, located at 178 Victoria Street was built in 1894 by architect Sidney Badgley and financed by Hart Massey of Massey-Harris. In 1933, the Massey Foundation undertook the further renovations to the hall. It is currently used for a variety of events and is operated by the same corporation as Roy Thomson Hall. The concert hall's debut concert was on June 14, 1894. In 1994, to commemorate the Hall's 100th anniversary, the basement was completely refurbished to include Centuries, a fully-stocked bar. Prior to this addition, alcohol was not permitted in the hall. The theatre seats up to 2,752 patrons, down from 3,500 after extensive renovations in the 1940s. Notable guests and performances include former Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier, Luciano Pavarotti, King George V, the Dalai Lama, Bob Marley, and James Brown. Taken by Dhodges on Wikipedia.

Photo #146 - Looking Back from the Gardiner

The skyline and part of the Steam Whistle Brewery seen from the Gardiner Expressway. The company produces a premium pilsner lager packaged in distinctive green glass bottles and a non-twist cap. They only use four natural ingredients: spring water from Caledon, Ontario; hops from Germany; 2-row barley; and yeast. In 2004, Steam Whistle Pilsner was voted best beer in Toronto at the Golden Tap Awards. The brewery occupies Bays 1-14 within a building known as the John St. Roundhouse. Built in 1929, it was previously the home of a Canadian Pacific Railway steam locomotive repair facility, and operated as such until May 13, 1988. The John St. Roundhouse is designated a National Historic Site, and is owned by the City of Toronto.

Thanks for the comments. Chinatown is a pretty neat place, it's always packed with people.
