|This is the view from the fort I wrote about a few months ago. You are looking straight down, well, Fort Street towards the St. Lawrence River.|
|Spot the Bud.|
|Big scary front door where haughty girls with short bangs cull the herd and ambush the weak.|
|The other side of the Centre for Architecture. I assume it's supposed to reflect Montreal with its modern buildings cosying up to ancient ones. Pretty cool mansion. I'd live there.|
|I would take my afternoon tea here, brought to me by my manservant Bartholomew. He had a tough upbringing, but he has the heart of a lion and the manners of a Victorian lady. Do not call him Bart as he will take offense.|
|This is my bedroom. My ladies maid would turn down my sheets every night. (I may have been watching too much Downton Abbey.) Also she would brush my hair and serve me a single malt from a silver tray. My dream, my rules.|
|This sits opposite the Centre. I think it's symbolic. Or ironic.|
|This Chair is Not for Sitting. It is ART.|
|Spot the Doug and the Bud.|
|This is the view from the photo above looking towards the remains of the fort.|
|I just liked this house. Typical of Montreal architecture.|
To answer a couple of questions in the comments:
Picture #8 is the Esplanade Ernest-Cormier, or sculpture garden, not actual ruins. It's meant to mimic the centre across the street.
Ernest Cormier designed a number of high profile buildings in Montreal, including Cormier House, which became Pierre Trudeau's home on Pine Avenue. I think his son still lives there. It's not that far from where I live and I have walked past it many times with the Budster. Not too long ago, I watched them cut down the only tree out front. Not sure which of us was more sad, me or Buddy.
The mansion attached to the CCA is Shaughnessy House mansion. Read about that here:
