Photographer's Note

This beautiful Georgian house was built in 1822, as the home of Sir William Campbell, Sixth Chief Justice of Upper Canada, and his wife, Lady Hannah.
It is the oldest remaining house from the original site of the Town of York, the foundation of today’s Toronto.
On March 31, 1972, it was moved to its present location at the corner of Queen and University from its original home 1 ½ kilometres to the southeast, at the intersection of what is now Adelaide St. and Frederick St., saved from the wreckers’ ball by a professional association of Trial Lawyers known as the Advocates' Society (proof that there ARE some good lawyers in this world!!).
Although it is dwarfed by the Canada Life Building behind it, it stands out as an island of calm in the midst of a busy city.
