Exhibition Stadium

You don't see a lot of cards with pictures taken in Canadian ballparks. An exception is 1981 Fleer, which has a lot of nice shots of the old Exhibition Stadium in Toronto.

I am curious about the large building with the green (oxidized copper?) roof behind Dave Stieb in that last shot. I took a look in Google maps and the best I could come up with is that it could have been a part of the Queen Street Mental Health Centre, but I could be completely wrong. Any Canadians familiar with this building?

  1. That building in the distance (with the green oxidized copper roof) is one of the two towers at the rear of Ricoh Coliseum (which is just east from where old Exhibition Stadium used to stand).
