Long Description:
.

At 357 Bay Street you will find these beautiful bronze art deco doors.
There is a set of these double doors on the outside of the building and they show the wear and tear of being exposed to the elements over the years. Just inside these doors you will find another identical set that have been protected and are in much better condition. These doors are the main entrance to 357 Bay Street which is a 10-storey office building in downtown Toronto that was built in 1921.

From the plaque near the outer doors:
"The art deco bronze doors at the entrance-way to this building originally graced the main entrance of The Toronto Star Building at 80 King St. W. from 1929 to 1971. When The Star relocated, the doors were donated to The Royal Ontario Museum. In 1991, they were presented to the newly-renovated 357 Bay St. building for public display."

357 Bay Street is on the east side of Bay, just north of Temperance Street, south of Richmond Street West.
