Antique and Modern

Montreal is a city mixed with antique and modern buildings. I personally prefer antique buildings. This shot was taken at the corner of Guy and St. Catherine streets. Opened in 1903, the Bank of Toronto building was one of the first commercial projects of Ross and MacFarlane. Considered a modern classic of its time, the construction was modeled on the Temple of Zeus in Agrigento, 480 BC. It is plan to be part of the Concordia University's buildings, expanding the Quartier Concordia, and giving a new charm of the Sir George Williams downtown campus.
