steamers and prestigious hotels, after building Dalhousie
Station (1884), the adjacent elevators (1885-1887) and
Windsor Station (1887-1889), had the Viger Station and
Hotel built (1896-1898) in the "château"
style characteristic of its finest hotelslike
the famous Château Frontenac, in Quebec City.
