The Centre Block as it appeared around 1870.

The original structure was designed by Thomas Fuller and Chilion Jones. It was in the Gothic Revival style that was popular at the time. The British Palace of Westminster had recently been rebuilt in this style, and the choice of a gothic rather than an American inspired neoclassical design, was a symbol of Canada's continued links to Britain. The building was erected in the High Victorian Gothic style. By this time the desire to faithfully imitate medieval designs had faded, and architects were freely remixing Gothic elements in new and innovative manners. Thus the tower comes from German architecture, the roofs from French, and the library distinctly English. ImageMetadata File history File links Original_Canadian_parliament. ...

Library of Parliament Reading Room

In spring of 2006, major inside and outside renovations of the Library of Parliament [1] were completed. The renovations, which began in 2002, are the first ones since repairs were made in 1952-1956 after a small fire in the dome attic. The reading room of the library is once again open to the public and is considered, by some, to be the most beautiful room in Canada.

The Centre Block was immediately rebuilt, being completed in 1920, with the Peace Tower, commemorating the end of the First World War, being completed in 1927.
