"Sir Henry Pellatt might be building himself a castle"

Sir Henry Pellatt had amassed a $17 million fortune when he began building his baronial dream castle, Casa Loma, on Davenport Hill overlooking Toronto and Lake Ontario beyond. It took three years and $3.5 million to build, but Pellatt confessed to neighbour, Lady Flora Eaton, that it would take another $1 million to complete. That never happened, however, as bad investments following WW1 ended his dream and the Pellatts moved out in 1924.

Take a short tour of this amazing building.
