Toronto – The 6ix

Join us on a photo tour of Toronto’s City Hall. Opened on September 13, 1965 this building’s design is a hallmark of modern architecture with its futuristic looking council chamber surrounded by high rise office towers. The shape of the chamber has often been compared to a flying saucer and the buildings have appeared twice in Star Trek episodes.
