Ornate columns and steps line the front of the Old City Hall in downtown Toronto in Ontario. This is opposite the street from the New City Hall and stands at the corner of Queen Street and Bay Street.

The detail in the columns at the entrance to the Old City Hall in downtown Toronto, Ontario, takes weeks of work to achieve. This kind of detailing is not often noticeable to everyone, especially as it is at the top of the column and not everyone will look up and see it.

There was a time when this building was slated for demolition and was going to be replaced with skyscrapers, but due to overwhelming opposition, the city abandoned the plans and kept the old building as a landmark for the city.

The building has been used for film and television due to its ornate and unique feel and its ability to become a variety of locations.
