Cornwall Town Hall Pitt St.  The postcard says City Hall, but City status was still years away from the date of this World War 1 postcard.  The town hall was constructed in 1863.  The Hall was enlarged after a fire in 1876 to house two fire engines.  The wooden tower was take down in 1953 as a fire hazard.
