Description

The Gooderham Building is a Toronto landmark located near the St. Lawrence Market. It was built by architect David Roberts, Jr. and originally cost $18,000 to construct for distiller George Gooderham, and it was the office of the Gooderham & Worts distillery until 1952.
The Gooderham Building is well known both for its narrow wedge shape and for the mural on its back wall. The Flatiron Mural by renowned Canadian artist Derek Michael Besant uses a trompe l'oeil effect to not only make the wall appear to have more windows than it does, but to also give it a more mobile effect by having its edges 'fluttering' away where they are not 'tacked' down. It is a picture of the Perkins Building, which is located directly across the street.
The building has a Romanesque cornice and frieze above the arched windows on the 4th floor. The main entrance located on Wellington Street makes use of a French Gothic archway. The foundation is made of sandstone. The steep copper roof has eight gable dormers: four on the south facade and four on the north fašade. In reality there are no street car lines where they are pictured in this piece but the streetcars nostalgically known as the Red Rockets are also icons of the Toronto streetscape.This nostalgic drawing brings into play the old Red Rocket as is seen leaving to the west as the new Red Rocket enters the foreground in front of one of my favorite Toronto landmarks.
