TORONTO, ONT., Osgoode Hall Law Courts, Queen Street West at University Avenue, 1855. The Montreal firm of Hopkins, Lawford & Nelson was commissioned by the Law Society of Upper Canada to prepare a detailed report on various options for adding to and expanding the existing complex (NAC, RG5, C1, Vol. 484, p. 6-7, "Proposal for the Rebuilding of Osgoode Hall" dated May 1855). They presented an elaborate neoclassical design which was "...more massive and more imposing in style" than the existing building dating from 1844 (Leslie Maitland, Neoclassical Architecture in Canada, 1984, 53-55, illus. & descrip.). However, their suggestions were later shelved, and Cumberland & Storm of Toronto were awarded the contract for the project in 1856. Fortunately, a complete folio of 24 watercolour presentation drawings by Hopkins, Lawford & Nelson for the Osgoode Hall project has survived, and is now held at the Ontario Archives, York University, Toronto (OA, Horwood Coll., Acc. 453, Dwgs. 1 to 24)

COMPETITIONS

QUEBEC CITY, QUE., Custom House, 1856. Hopkins, Lawford and Nelson were one of fourteen architectural firms from Canada and United States who submitted designs for this important commission (NAC, RG 11, Vol. 90, File No. 3, 'Schedule of Competitors for the Proposed Quebec Custom House', 25 March 1856). The First Premium was awarded to William Thomas.
OTTAWA, ONT., Parliament Building and Governor General's Residence, 1859. Under the pseudonym 'Fiat', Hopkins, Lawford & Nelson were one of sixteen competing firms who submitted designs for this commission. Their proposals, presented in the 'Italian' style, were not premiated (Carolyn Young, The Glory of Ottawa: Canada's First Parliament Buildings, 1995, 117)
MONTREAL, QUE., Canada Presbyterian Church, Ste. Catherine Street West near Peel Street, 1862-64, for Rev. Dr. William Taylor. Hopkins was one of several architects who submitted a design for the project. The scheme by Cyrus P. Thomas was the preferred one, but another competitor, John W. Hopkins, sued Thomas in Quebec Superior Court to obtain the commission, and he won a financial judgement against Thomas. A lengthy article on the court case was published in the British architectural journal The Builder [London], xxv, 8 June 1867, 415.
