Bank of Montreal

298 Baker Street, Nelson, BC

1899 - Rattenbury Beaux Arts Classical Revival. Although not formally trained in the Beaux Arts form of architecture Frances Rattenbury designed a lovely building in this style. The building reflects a sense of security and stability in a time of growth. The bank first opened, in a barber shop, in 1892. Note the decorative scroll bearing the bank insignia.
