9th Floor: 17th century Yorkshire or is that 18th?
The York Room is a late 17th or early 18th century room that was moved from Yorkshire, England to the 9th floor of the north Ross Tower at York University in Toronto. It's a wonderful, intimate room used for thesis dissertations, signing ceremonies, and other special functions. It's located opposite the Senate. Today, I was there for the second time in as many years to cover for YFILE (our campus news) the visiting delegations from DePaul University and Loyola University in the USA and from Universidad de Guanajuato and Universidad Iberoamericana. They are meeting with us and Concordia University in Montreal to arrange for a tri-national exchange program focusing on human migration and immigration issues. It's been interesting being a fly on the wall for two days. Nice folks, everyone.
Read about the York Room - our hidden gem. My photos are more true to the real colour of the room which is quite pale. The photos on the wall are past YorkU chancellors. I have no information on the painting.
