More open doors

After my visits to Campbell House and the Canada Life building, I headed to Osgoode Hall.

There was a great self-guided tour of the courtrooms, Great Library, and the formal rooms used by the Law Society of Upper Canada, and I really appreciated the open, friendly atmosphere as people were welcomed into a public space with no apparent concern for security threats. Lawyers and librarians were on hand to explain how the building is used today, and kids and adults were welcome to sit in the seats for judges and QCs and have their picture taken wearing robes.

In the Great Library:

and in one of the courtrooms:

It all felt a little Street Legal and I kept expecting Chuck and Olivia to come around the corner, legal robes flapping in the wind.
