This example of late nineteenth century architecture was built in 1885 by the Bank of Montreal, and used as the bank's Toronto headquarters until 1949, when the bank moved to the corner of King and Bay streets. The building was then used as a branch until 1982. After laying dormant for a decade, the building was reopened on June 18, 1993 as the new Hockey Hall of Fame.

The photo of the Bank of Montreal building comes from the City of Toronto Archives. The photo of the Hockey Hall of Fame is by Stephen M.
