#RoofSquares

Becky at The Life of B June's theme is Roofs. Tag your post #RoofSquares and link to Becky’s post each day and remember your image must be square.

I'm not sure I will post every day but will try.



Although the Art-Deco Bank of Commerce building in Commerce Court is no longer the tallest structure in Toronto, it remains one of the most impressive buildings in the city and deserves recognition for its architectural excellence. Plans to erect it commenced in 1927, amid the optimism that dominated the Roaring Twenties.




The top of the Bank of Commerce Building, where these massive carved-stone heads gaze out across the city. The heads represent Courage, Observation, Foresight, and Enterprise.
The Observation Gallery on the 32nd floor, behind the heads, is no longer open to the public.
