The Royal York

The Royal YorkThe Royal York hotel was opened on June 11, 1929 by Lord Willingdon, Canada's governor-general. That means she turned 75 years old today.

At the time, The Royal York was the largest hotel and tallest building in the British Empire. That's hard to believe considering how dwarfed she is now by dozens of skyscrapers. Still, she's a gem in our skyline and I want to wish her a most happy birthday.
