Dandurand, Kevin (2000) Bruce Price, and his Montreal train stations. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
The following is an investigation into a portion of an American's work contrived in Montreal. Architect Bruce Price experienced a short yet prosperous career; and part of his career was devoted to Canadian architecture. His most famous accomplishment in Canada is most likely Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City. He worked primarily for the CPR and he designed numerous buildings across the country. Subsequently this thesis scrutinizes two of his Montreal train stations which were both built late in the nineteenth century. Windsor Station (1887-89) was constructed downtown, while Place Viger Station (1896-98) was Montreal's first major east end station. These two works provide tremendous contrast, and they are discussed chiefly from an architectural standpoint; their styles will be the primary issue. Furthermore, their motives and sources of inspiration will be compared; for each station was built in a style accepted as important in the history of architecture.
