  Soldiers' Tower, University of Toronto
by mikey_e

Soldiers' Tower was built by the university of Toronto after the First World War in order to commemorate those students of the University who gave their lives during the Great War and WWII. The passageway underneath the Tower is engraved with the names of those remembered, as is a wall to the side of the tower. On special occasions (i.e. Rememberance Day, November 11) the bells in the Tower are rung. The tower was designed by Sproat and Rolph and erected between 1919 and 1924.
