This structure, at 303 Bay Street, has this 1974 plaque attached to the wall right beside the front door. It is the fourth plaque ever erected by Heritage Toronto. Here's what it says:
Plaque coordinates: 43.649499 -79.380480
Established in 1874 to foster national sentiment and to give the "Canada First Movement" a home, the Club began in a building on the site of the Toronto Stock Exchange. Expanding membership necessitated new facilities and in 1907 these premises, designed by S.G. Curry were occupied.
