The Gooderham (or Flatiron) Building is one of Toronto's most iconic and often-photographed historical structures, wedged on the triangle of land where Front Street and Wellington Street merge at Church. This image, submitted by Steven Nik Lexow, showcases the late 19th-century design of the building as the angle of the sun washes out the modern downtown skyscrapers behind. The building, built in 1892, cost just $18,000 to construct and was designed by architect David Roberts Jr., who was commissioned by George Gooderham of Gooderham & Worts distillers. The Gooderham name lives on in a condo tower currently under construction in the Distillery District. This "new" Gooderham will be complete in 2013.
