The former home of the Toronto Stock Exchange, this 1937 building is as notable for its deco design as for its collection of post-war Canuck artefacts. Noted Canadian artist Charles Comfort created the eight murals on the former trading floor, as well the the exterior stone frieze, which depicts different kinds of workers. Check out the businessman in a top hat (fourth in from the right) apparently picking the pocket of the worker in front of him.
