Bank to Art Gallery

This old bank building….

Is being converted into a performance space and art gallery with a green roof and LEED certification – so inspiring!  I also really like the name of the former bank –  Farmers and Merchants Bank – it tells a story right there.

    • Yup, I agree. I used to work for TD when it merged with CT to become TDCT (Toronto Dominion Canada Trust). This old man told me that he remembered when the Toronto bank merged with the Dominion bank. So there is a bit of history there — it’s just been buried and perhaps a little forgotten, which is too bad.

      • My aunt worked for Canada Trust too. She’s still with TD today. I wonder why they all decided to drop the full names. Maybe it’s just a branding trend.
