City Hall Park – 1960’s

After a crazy end to last week, with the seagrave demolition and everything, I though a nice old postcard view would be good for a Monday morning.

This view from the early 1960’s shows a view of City Hall Park and a view south along City Hall Square.

Behind City Hall we can see the old, long demolished court house, and opposite that the original police headquarters, built in 1921 and demolished in 2005 can be seen as well.

Take a look at that building with the undulating roof in the foreground on the right hand side. That was the original Tourist Information Centre. Too bad that place isn’t around anymore.

Funny how as usual, most of the building you can see have been demolished….

Also thanks to everyone who raised a ruckus about the Seagrave Building. Everyone who called the media or 311 or the Minisrty of Labour, or your councilor, or anything you did, it all really helped.

Your activism forced this issue into the media spotlight, and has forced City Hall to take some action. What will happen, I’m not sure, but keep in mind we still have an uphill battle.

Thanks!
