Our Montréal Buzz “Photo of the Week” goes to flickr star ‘paspog.’ Via a ‘fish-eye lens,’ we find ourselves magically transferred into the heart of Old Montréal, with one of Canada’s most famous churches (Notre Dame) tucked into the right side of the photo. Also noteworthy is the tall, white building in the center known as the “Alfred Building.” This art-deco edifice is considered an early model of the Empires State Building. Wikipedia states that… “The building resembles the Empire State Building, completed the same year, and was built for Aldred and Company Limited, a New York City-based international finance company.” So we can think of the Alfred Building as the twitter-esque version of the Empire State Building. —————————————————————————————————————— Submit your Montréal pictures to our MONTRÉAL BUZZ FLICKR GROUP.
