  • Notes 
    • Susan Pequegnat emailed that she recalls well the "shiny brass stairway railing, the grey-white marble floors and the wonderful wooden office doorways" of the old city hall, which she regularly visited as a child in the 1950s.

      Her father, Robert K. Pequegnat, was head of the city water commission, which had a first-floor office behind the stairway.

      "On many a Saturday morning, my family would head to the Kitchener Farmers' Market, located directly behind city hall. As Mom shopped, my Dad would take my sister and I up to his office.

      "There he would catch up on paperwork while we borrowed two of the wooden wheeled steno chairs from the office. We would roll and twirl our way around the empty lobby space, having races or spinning in circles until we were too dizzy to stand up straight."
