Massey Hall No 1

Massey Hall No 1

Opened in 1894 and restored with new fire escapes after the Great Fire of 1904, the 2,765 seat Massey Hall at No 178 Victoria St in Toronto Ontario has played host to concerts, lectures, weddings, movies, boxing matches, beauty contests, religious and political rallies, typing contests and chess tournaments. The building was designated an Ontario Heritage Property in 1973 and a National Historic Site of Canada in 1981.

On a personal note...

A very partial list of some of my fave live performances I was lucky enough to see over the years at MH:

Van Morrison
Tom Waits
Robert Cray
Gentle Giant
Toronto Symphony Orchestra

Original photography from 2015 using a Canon EOS 60D body with a Sigma 17-70mm f2.8 DC Macro OS lens. Reprocessed in 2017 using Silver EFEX Pro as a Lightroom plugin for the Black and White conversion.
