From 1876 to 1915, Edward James Lennox was a formidable force in Toronto's architectural community. Many of his buildings are still landmarks in a city that continues to evolve. Born and educated in Toronto, Lennox looked to the past for inspiration but was never captured by it. His prototypical Annex houes on Madison Avenue, Old City Hall, and Casa Loma bear witness to his technical expertise and aesthetic sensibilities. Through text and illustrations, this volume tells the story of the a resolute architect whose vision helped shape an emerging city, and who in his time was called the "builder of Toronto." Edward James Lennox, "Builder of Toronto" is the first volume in the Canadian Master Architect series. Each publication will profile the work of an individual Canadian architect. The series editor is Marilyn M. Litvak.
