Heritage Toronto and Camrost Felcorp invite you to the presentation of a plaque for
The Imperial Oil Building!

Glenbow archive low res

Imperial Oil building, circa 1957. This building’s design first appeared as part of a proposal submitted in 1955 to the national competition for Toronto’s new City Hall by Marani & Morris, Mathers & Haldenby, Shore & Moffat. Glenbow Museum, IP-22-12-6.

This Modernist-style, 19-storey
tower clad in pink granite and
Indiana limestone was, at the time,
one of the largest welded steel-framed
structures in the world!

Come and enjoy the plaque

beautiful murals by
Toronto-born artist York Wilson!
