The way things work…

Banque Montreal

This is the Seigneurs Branch of the Bank of Montreal, built in 1894 in what I’d call the Hanseatic style. Having visited Hamburg and Lübeck in the last year, I’m even more comfortable with my undertanding of a style not often encountered here in the Midwest. I discovered the Montreal building quite accidentally, but was instantly drawn to it for the “confirmation” it gave for the Hansa House building I had designed for Agincourt—and posted, incidentally, some years ago. Thought I’d share it with you and append my scheme for the German–American Insurance Co. still standing on the west side of Broad Street a few doors north of the FM&M Bank.
