Inauguration of Hydroelectricity at Old City Hall

The archival image in this photo is from the Toronto Archives, Fonds 1244 Item 0323. It was taken by William James Sr. on May 2, 1911 before the inauguration of hydroelectricity in Toronto. Did you know part of the reason we got hydroelectricity that early was because Sir Henry Pellatt wanted it to power his newly built Casa Loma?
