I took this photo of the Flatiron Building in Toronto one day last July when Cousin 1 and I were on our way to visit Cousin 3.
The Flatiron Building was built in 1891 and is one of the most photographed buildings in Toronto. It was purchased from the Goodenham family who were in the distillery business and owned Gooderham and Worts Distillery.
It was designed by architect David Roberts and its unique shape makes it the first flatiron building preceding the Flatiron building in New York. This red brick Gothic Romanesque landmark is located in downtown Toronto at the intersection of Front st. Wellington St. and Church Street.
In 1975 the Flatiron building was declared a National Historic Site. At the back of the building a mural is painted by Canadian artist Derek Besant which is a mirror image of the building across the street.
