Montreal- Misc shots of center city

September 21,2008.



Montreal's Chinatown.



St James Anglican church.
Sylvie told us how the architecture of the tower behind is inspired by the old church.Look at the pointy windows on top that copy the stained glass window shape.



The building is also mirored so the church reflects in the newer building.You can see the church in the mirrors.


A throwback to the old trading post days with the former Hudson's Bay Co...




A quick stop through McGill University.McGill is Montreal's top English speaking Uni.



A quiet campus scene... it takes me back to my college years.



An unusual sculpture across from Mc Gill...



Do you feel enlightened now you know what this is ?!

What a beautiful city. I love the way that new tower building reflects the old church - quite lovely.

Hi again Meried,
Yes, for a modern skyscraper this is particuarlly well done. It's like an hommage to the old church.
I like it too ;)
