Casa Loma

Postmarked Ottawa 1983.
Casa Loma, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Known as "the House on the Hill" it was built as Sir Henry Pellatt's dream castle. Commenced in 1911 and completed in 1914 at a cost of several million dollars, it has 98 rooms and is now Toronto's foremost tourist attraction, being managed by the Kiwanis Club of West Toronto with net proceeds used for charitable work.
