Keys to History

In 1912, businessman Joseph-Ovide Gravel had this structure built on Place d'Armes. This office building, with its typical steel structure and regulation 130 feet (or 40 metres) - usually ten stories-, along with the Royal Trust Building, built at the same time facing it, were part of a new wave of Montreal skyscrapers. About forty of these tall buildings were built in the city up until the 1920s, about half of them in Old Montreal.
