Toronto Stock Exchange - Bay Street, Toronto, Canada

George and Moorehouse with S. H. Maw
234 Bay Street
When the Toronto Stock Exchange building opened in 1937 it was regarded as the most modern stock exchange in the world.  The trading floor featured 200 telephones and electrical display boards.  However, 46 years later the TSE left the building.  Today the Old Stock Exchange has been engulfed within the Toronto Dominion Centre and the building's stone facade is surrounded by glass.

The building is now the Design Exchange, a museum and a centre for promoting Canadian design.  The wonderful frieze across the front of the building, by Charles Comfort, has been preserved.
