Quick Reference

(1850–1923). Canadian architect. He trained with Street and Arthur Blomfield in London before setting up in practice in Toronto. His early works, including his Anglican churches, were influenced by Pearson and Street, but he is best remembered for his fine Beaux-Arts Classical Banks (designed with his partner (from 1895) John A. Pearson), (1867–1940)), notably the Canadian Bank of Commerce, Winnipeg, Manitoba (1910–11), and a whole series of prefabricated timber banks that could be erected on site in a day. The firm also designed the Sun Life Assurance Company Building, Montreal (1914–31), one of the tallest buildings in the British Empire at the time.
