The thread has a specific topic. It's not a general post images of old buildings thread

The Canadian Pacific building was reskinned in 1929 and, like modern day reskins, it doesn't live up to the original.

I didn't know that, so it was reskinned because the original material couldn't handle the extreme climate in Toronto. It's strange that the architects for FCP didn't learn any lessons from earlier highrises.
