Continuing our video series on Old Town Toronto with Bruce Bell, famous Toronto historian, we’ve profiled the Gooderham Building. This historical landmark, often referred to as the ”Flatiron” is actually older than its cousin building, the world-famous Flatiron in New York City. The Gooderham Building housed the Bank of Toronto, which later merged with the Dominion Bank to become the now popular Toronto Dominion (TD) Bank. Back in 1892 it cost George Gooderham $18,000 to construct and was recently sold for $10.1 million.
