Created to provide more space for city officials, it turned out to be the largest building in the city and the largest city building in NorthAmerica at the time.
Lennox took three years to design the City Hall and it took 11 years to build it. Contemporaries believe that the odd carving (雕刻) above Queen Street entrance were actually caricatures(漫画) of councilors at the time.
Lennox even included himself in the caricatures, on the west side of the central arch (拱 门) and left a strange signature in the stonework of the link portions of the building.
