• 1 Henry Bowyer Lane

    Henry Bowyer Lane was born in London, England. He studied architecture at the Royal Academy School, was a pupil of William Inwood (c.1771-1843) and had an active practice in London prior to immigrating to Upper Canada in 1840. He went first to Cobourg, then Toronto where he had a practice from 1842-47. His designs were largely for Toronto, including the City Hall and Market (1844 – the façade remains) and major additions to Osgoode Hall (1844). Important ecclesiastical commissions included Little Trinity Anglican (1843), St. George the Martyr Anglican (1844 – the tower remains) and Holy Trinity Anglican (1846). After much success in Toronto, Lane returned to England in 1847. Although Lane’s time in Toronto was brief, he made significant contributions to the mid-19th-century architecture of the city.
