Manufacturer's Arch

A number of arches were constructed to commemorate the visit of Prince George, Duke of Cornwall and Mary, Duchess of Cornwall to Toronto in 1901. At the top of University Ave stood the Manufacturer's Arch, just south of Queen's Park, at College St.

The Manufacturer's Arch was just one of the public arches built for this occasion, see also the Alexandra Gates and the IOF Arch.
