Old City Hall, Toronto, Stained Glass -1899 by Robert McCausland

As far as I can see, it is the only photo from inside Old City Hall on Panoramio, as there is no photography allowed, because the building is serving as a court and police is everywhere! (I risked an arrest in taking this image). ---------- Old City Hall. Opposite the grand staircase and an extraordinary stained-glass window designed in 1899 by Robert McCausland, a renowned Toronto glass artist. (The family company is still in business!!) The 16 ft. by 23 ft. window entitled The Union of Commerce and Industry, depicts civic progress and the "upbuilding" of Toronto. It is organized in three arches and features 12 life-sized figures amidst scenes of the city's waterfront and a depiction of Toronto's second city hall on Front Street East.

It was my first visit in Old City Hall in 35 years in Toronto. But, I still did not have to go in front of the judges there.
