Art deco bank


The Canada Permanent Building is a beautiful example of Art Deco architecture. Unfortunately we couldn't go into the lobby of this bank for better pictures. But I got a sneaky photo from the outside looking in - enjoy! For more signs, take a look at Signs, Signs.

High ceiling and beautifully curving pillars are gorgeous.

This is indeed beautiful architecture. It's just unfortunate it's in a bank and not, you know, my house.

Well done Halcyon, j'adore the arches, how fab it would be to work in such a place.

Well done, Hal! I like the way you got the name sharp and the rest blurred. And I think that's the way a bank ought to look!

Reminds of the NYC Library I posted today. Grand!

I'm a very big fan of art deco... But I'm not too keen on bank though.

We can see the Deco architecture is wonderful.

It is a beauty! It was part of the Art Deco tour I took with the historical society in the summer.

Beautiful building. I like some of the old bank buildings.

I have been inside and it is stunningly beautiful. It is also almost impossible to get good pictures because of all the polished gold and brass!

Pat said...

Looks very upscale! thanks for sneaking a photo!

I think your shot through the window is very effective.

It is elegant. Do you go inside banks very much any more? I hardly ever do.

Looks to be very beautiful inside.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
