"Bank of Montreal (1847, 1905)" Architectural/Culture (Old and New) Tip by yooperprof

Favorite thing: The main branch of the Bank of Montreal has a commanding place in the Places d'Armes, on Rue St. Jacques (St. James Street), the city's version of Wall Street. The original structure, designed by John Wells, features a Pantheon-like dome and was opened all the way back in 1849.

Subsequent changes at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century were supervised by Stanford White (1853-1906), of the pre-eminent New York firm of Mead, McKim & White.
