See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The square on which Toronto’s new $25,000,000 City Hall is being built has been re-named Nathan Phillips Square in honor of Toronto’s Jewish Mayor.

Mr. Phillips, who has been mayor since 1955, was proposed for the honor by a motion in city council in recognition of his efforts on behalf of the new city hall. The area previously was known as Albert Square.
