General note

“Towers have played a traditional part in entrances throughout the ages. This connecting bridge and tower effect, linking the garage to the residence as shown in a Westmount, Quebec, home, reflects that rational historic atmosphere. The treatment appeals to the layman’s sense of the appropriate, which is perhaps one of the first assets of domestic architecture.” --“An Unique Link Between House and Garage, ” Canadian Homes and Gardens 4 --(January 1927) : 41. --
