View Toronto’s first historic plaque

19 Sep

While strolling along King Street, between Bay and Yonge Streets, on the north side of the street I saw two historic plaques that I had not noticed before. Being a sucker for any historic plaque, I investigated and was surprised to learn that one of them was an historic plaque commemorating the other historic plaque. The pictures below will clarify.

This plaque, placed on the building in 1969 recognized the importance of an event that occurred in 1923. It was the first plaque ever installed by the Toronto Historical Board. When the building on which it had been placed was demolished, the plaque was removed and installed on the new building that had been constructed.

Another plaque was placed beside the old one to commemorate the installation of the first plaque.
