Since Stelco Tower was completed in 73, I'm gonna guess this was taken in 72.

I often wish the Pigott Building was about 10 storeys taller than it is. I'd feel the same about it, but it would have stood out more above the mundane stuff like Effort Square and First City Trust.

I wish I'd had the chance to experience the market area. I am old enough to remember the old Eaton's, however, which was pretty cool.

Awesome.

Most of those spots had gone by the time the mid to late 80s had arrived. It was still a pretty good place to get into mischief, however.

The store on the first floor of the Balfour building - does that say "Turner Wines"?

Of all the buildings that have been lost downtown over the decades, the old city hall is probably the one I would have most loved to have seen remain standing. She was gone way before my time though.
