• 1 Edward James (E.J.) Lennox

    E.J. Lennox was born in Toronto where he attended architectural drawing classes at the Mechanics’ Institute, after which he studied in the office of William Irving for five years. He founded the firm of Lennox and McGraw, which dissolved in 1882. Important Lennox buildings include: Erskine Presbyterian Church (Toronto, 1879); Bond Street Congregational Church (Toronto, 1879); and Bloor Street Baptist (Toronto, 1884). Perhaps his most famous design is Sir Henry Pellet’s Casa Loma (Toronto, 1909-13). Lennox is most noted for his use of the Richardsonian Romanesque style, which is best seen in Toronto’s Old City Hall (1887-89), the Toronto Athletic Club (1890) and the west wing of Ontario's legislative building at Queen's Park (Toronto, 1909). He also designed in other architectural styles popular during his time as a practising architect, including Edwardian Classicism, Victorian Eclectic and Beaux-Arts, the latter of which can be seen in the Bank of Toronto building (Toronto, 1905) on Yonge Street.
