Toronto is looking for a century-old clock that's missing
A clock that was the centerpiece of a 141-year-old fire hall tower on Ossington Avenue, just north of Queen Street, went missing years ago, but the hunt to find it is reignited.
The city is planning on revitalizing the exterior of the tower, which was once a Victorian trim brick building, but is now a washed out pale grey structure, with no clock.
The clock tower was built in 1878 and perched on top of Fire Hall No. 9, the oldest intact fire station in the city. The University Health Network now leases the building for the Men's Withdrawal Management Centre.
No one actually knows when the clock went missing or where it went.
The city is officially on the hunt.
