That's a great grouping you've compiled there. Confederation Life is one of my favourite buildings any where, but people don't seem to photograph it much. Another beauty is the Royal York Hotel; about as grand a big city hotel as you can get. Thank you for sharing them.

Remember that heritage doesn't mean old. This is an unfortunate assumption which is common in the general public. There's a plethora of great modernist buildings which are part of the city's heritage and are listed in the inventory.

But the photos are nice. Thanks for sharing them. Walk around the University of Toronto's campus for more stunning old landmarks.

The work on the Flatiron Building has been crawling along at a snails pace. The scaffolding was up a year and a half ago during Doors Open '07. Seems to be taking forever.

It's strange, for such a beautiful building, St. Lawrence Hall is not very often photographed. This picture sure shows its charms though!
