Bruce Price Collection

  • CA CAC 9
  • Collection
  • 1888-1897

The collection consists of architectural drawings from 1888-1897 documenting three projects by Price: Windsor Station (1888-1889), James Ross House (extension, 1897), and an office building for William C. Van Horne in Vancouver, BC. These were some of Price's important commissions in Canada where he produced his most memorable work in a Romanesque Revival style, including the original wing of Chàteau Frontenac Hotel in Quebec City, QC (1882-1893), and Windsor Station for the Canadian Pacific Railway Company in Montreal, QC (1888-1889).

La collection inclut 35 dessins architecturaux créés entre 1888 et 1897. Il réunit trois projets de Price : la gare Windsor (1888-1889), la maison James Ross (rallonge, 1897) et un édifice à bureaux pour William C. Van Horne à Vancouver, Colombie britannique. Ceux sont parmi des plus importantes réalisations de Price au Canada où il a produit ses oeuvres de style néo-romanesque les plus mémorables : le bâtiment principal de l'hôtel Château Frontenac à Québec (1882-1893) et la gare Windsor pour la société Canadien Pacifique (1888-1889).

Price, Bruce, 1845-1903

  • 1952-2006

The collection consists of reports and plans for urban and rural areas from all provinces of Canada dating from the late 1950s to the 1990s. Most of the material consists of plans and reports for future land-uses that are revised, usually every decade. It also includes regulations for these areas, such as zoning. Some reports deal with sectorial policies such as housing, transportation, conservation, or environmental protection.
