General note

Hugh Griffith Jones (1872-1947) was born in Randolph, WI; he studied at the University of Minnesota and practised architecture in Chicago and later in New York. In 1908 he moved to Montreal and assumed the post of assistant chief architect for the Canadian Pacific Railway Company for which he designed a number of railway hotels and stations. The Montreal Windsor Station extension was his first important commission in Canada. During the 1920s Jones worked on the Montreal Terminal development, as well as on the design for Union Station in Toronto, in collaboration with John MacIntosh Lyle (1872-1945). While the majority of Jones' work involved railway companies and stations, he also designed churches and public buildings in Montreal.

General note

Hugh Griffith Jones (1872-1947) est né à Randolph (Wisconsin); il a étudié à l'Université du Minnesota et a exercé l'architecture à Chicago et plus tard à New York. En 1908, il s'est installé à Montréal et exercé les fonctions d'adjoint au premier architecte de la société Canadien Pacifique pour le compte de laquelle il a dessiné bon nombre d'hôtels et de gares. L'annexe à la gare Windsor de Montréal a été son premier projet d'importance au Canada. Au cours des années 20, Jones a travaillé au projet de la Garre centrale de Montréal de même que sur les plans de la gare Union de Toronto, en collaboration avec Joli Maclntosh Lyle (1872-1945). Si Jones a surtout réalisé des gares et divers autres travaux pour le compte de sociétés ferroviaires, il a aussi dessiné des églises et des immeubles publics à Montréal.
