Bank of Nova Scotia

Curiously, the Bank of Novia Scotia was designed in 1929-1936 but was not constructed until 1946-51, presumably because of World War II, but I'm very glad they did. More shots and information, including a fine interior view, are here. Peeking up behind the original 27 story building is the 68 story Scotia Plaza Tower, built in 1988.

I particularly liked the reliefs of mythological figures by Frederick Winkler.

WELCOME TO TORONTO! Hey there. I really enjoy reading and how you see toronto. As a native I realize I take a bit for granted. But I'm glad to see you taking it in with some what of a fine comb :). I also really like the photos you have taken.
