The Thomas Foster Memorial - 1936

The Thomas Foster Memorial was built in 1935-1936 by former Mayor of Toronto, Thomas Foster.   A dedication ceremony of the Memorial was held Sunday, October 25, 1936.

The Foster was built as a tribute to his wife and daughter and inspired by the Taj Mahal in India.

It is located just north of the town of Uxbridge and is the resting place for his wife, daughter and himself.  The Thomas Foster is considered on the of the most spectacular tombs in North America.

According to the memorials website http://www.thomasfostermemorial.com/

"The memorial is inspired by the Taj Mahal mixed with Byzantine Architecture, with solid bronze doors, stain glass windows hand painted and fired. The floors are rich coloured terrazzo and marble mosaics wrought in symbolic designs fashioned by some of the finest artisans of the time."
