Cornerstones of Order: Courthouses and Town Halls of Ontario 1784-1914 by Marion MacRae and Anthony Adamson was the second volume in the Society’s publication series. The Society was delighted to be associated in this publication with these two distinguished authors, who had already left their mark on the socio-architectural history of Canada. Cornerstones is a volume of enduring interest and beauty, a visual treat, accompanied by a text which places Ontario’s public buildings and courthouses fully within the context of evolving events and traditions.In this study of our socio-architectural traditions and in the splendid accompanying photographs by Emel Erkan and others, a unique and vital aspect of our past comes alive again for our enjoyment and appreciation.
