convocation hall

This is a stairway in the University of Toronto Convocation Hall. The hall was built in 1906 and by Canadian standards that makes it a historic building. UofT itself dates back to 1827 when it was known as Kings College. I like spending time at UofT because there is a nice sense of history about this place. Maybe I like it because it reminds me of home - England. Yet compared to England it all seems quite new - for instance Oxford University dates back 1096 - a real sense of history there!
