Maple Leaf Gardens opened this week in 1931. Construction only took six months, and workers were given stock in the building as part of their salary.

This is a part of our Toronto-centric #tbt, which offers a weekly look back at some key moments in the city’s history.

New York's Empire State Building was also built very quickly. They built big structures quickly and efficiently back then.

Gee, I'm sure glad all the advances in technology and knowledge we have today has helped us renovate Union Station in a similarly short timeframe. Tax dollars at work people. #BlackHole
The mind blowing part is how this only took 6 months to build #yyz
Amazing building completed in six months. Incredible!

I wonder how long the planning approvals took? 😉
