Once upon a city: Creating Toronto's skyline
from Toronto Star
John A. Pearson was at the height of his architectural career when he was commissioned to design what would be the tallest building — a veritable skyscraper — in the British Empire. But in typical low-key, Canadian fashion, there was no fanfare when the 34-storey, 145-metre-high head office of the Canadian Bank of Commerce opened its doors in 1931 at 25 King St. W. The stock market had crashed in 1929, less than a year after work began on the iconic tower.
