Down to the water 

Bas-reliefs of ships
The Port can't be far away! Bas-reliefs of ships on the Robert Hampson building, dating from 1927... 


A clock in the shape of a ship’s wheel
... and a clock in the shape of a ship's wheel (has now been removed) on the building of Robert Reford & Co., an import-export concern. When the attractive Chartier de Lotbinière house was built, in 1811, the district was still home to affluent Montréal families.


If you look up, you'll glimpse the astonishing gargoyles on the head office of Cunard Steamship Lines. This ten-storey building, dating from 1913, combined the sobriety of the new architectural style that had appeared shortly after the introduction of metal structures with a marked taste for older styles, in this case Neo-Gothic. 

Business and stone 


And fires!
