1915 Central Technical School

  • Central Technical School Under Construction

    A Shining Example of Building Excellence

    Some unique features characterize Central Technical School. Because it was paid for by Toronto's citizens, it is the only school that uses the City's coat of arms entrenched over its main entrance. The elegant Exhibition Room, Room 208, a gift from the builder, was graced with fine panelling and a fireplace. The Scottish stonemason builders surmounted the front support columns with two gnomes, one in cap and gown, one with hammer and chisel; these represent the school's academic and technical strands.
