Where Gothic Revival meets Art Deco.
Unlike the interior of Notre-Dame Basilica (Montreal), the facade is not inspiring. Well, at least not as impressive as the other famous Notre-Dame of Paris, or Italian Gothic Cathedrals such as Duomo di Milano or Duomo di Firenze. But that's not surprising since the facade of the Old World Cathedrals took centuries to build and were started when the New World was not even discovered by Europeans. The construction of Notre-Dame of Montreal was finished in 1888 (the organ inside took longer), and by that period, architecture was going through its own revolution, morphing towards simpler modern structures.
By the 1930s it was Art Deco that was all the rage, as shown by Edifice Aldred that seems to be touching the Notre-Dame in this photo. In reality they are diagonally placed in space. Built in 1931, the Aldred Building housed a New York based financial company and resembles another New York Giant, The Empire State Building (which was coincidentally finished in 1931 as well). Just a teeny bit of history lesson for you, and me.
