CN Tower

This is a belated Happy Birthday to the CN Tower (on the right). On April 2, 1975 the construction of the CN Tower was completed in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Reaching to a height of 553.3 metres (1,815 feet) and thus became the world's tallest freestanding structure at the time.


  1. Nothing better than a bright blue sky to brighten a day!

  2. And is there a revolving restaurant in top ?

  3. Yes there is S.C. Also other attractions such as the EdgeWalk.

  4. Very striking sight and also looks a beautiful day in Toronto!

  5. Hard to believe it was completed that long ago!

  6. It was an exciting time in the city!

  7. 1975 seems like yesterday to me.
    I was once dragged, kicking and screaming, into the CN Tower elevator and up to the restaurant. I faced the back of the elevator, with my eyes closed, and sat in the chair farthest from the window as we had dinner. That was in the mid-80s, and I haven't improved since.
    I remember seeing Rick Mercer doing the EdgeWalk on his show. Well, I almost saw it. I had my eyes closed.

    1. I would have loved to be there on that day when you went up the tower. It must have been a hoot:-)

  8. I was interested to read that the American Society of Civil Engineers has declared this tower one of the seven wonders of the modern world. High praise indeed. If you're familiar with engineers, you'd certainly know they're not prone to hyperbole.
