Back In Time: Re-Visiting Historical Waterloo Region
#1
Browsing the local public libraries archives online and there are lots of really interesting photos and articles to share. 

If there is an historical thread maybe a MOD could put move this into the correct thread, if not let's enjoy!

Hoping to post new "old photos" over time. Got any to share or comments?

So where was the old Waterloo city hall?  When was it torn down?

The Waterloo town hall was at Albert and Erb, where the Marsland Centre now stands. It was demolished in 1969. Waterloo City Hall had been moved some years earlier into rented space in the Waterloo Square building.

Thanks.  So just like in Kitchener, they built a beautiful building with outstanding architecture on the site of the old city (town) hall. Rolleyes

I have no memory of wailing and gnashing of teeth when the Waterloo hall came down.
