Keys to History
This panoramic view of the extension of the Windsor lets us see it in its setting. On the right, the extension was designed in the style of the architecture school of the Beaux-Arts in Paris, a trend which, in 1906, was sweeping both New York and Montreal. This part was nevertheless in keeping with buildings of the 1870s, which itself followed the Parisian fashion of the time. All that remains intact today is the extension of 1906.
