Middlesex County Court House, London, Ontario, Canada 04

Description : Constructed between 1826 and 1829, the mortar had barely cured on the London Middlesex Courthouse when its first hanging took place. At the time, Upper Canada worked under British law which imposed the death sentence for some 230 offenses, including the theft of turnips. Fortunately, this penalty was reserved for more serious crimes here in London.
