50th anniversary of 395 Wellington

Today marks the day when Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson opened the building which then housed the separately administered National Library and National Archives of Canada at 395 Wellington Street.

The anniversary is being marked by an exhibit Building on History: Fifty Years of Preserving Memory at 395 Wellington Street in the Pellan Room at 395 Wellington Street (2nd floor) until September.

It is kind of ironic that today the CBC reports that Pearson's home in Toronto will be demolished for an 8-story commercial (?) building. The Toronto Preservation Society indicates the home has no real historic value and so will go the way of the wrecking ball.
