No longer the home of Sun Life Insurance, this columned building was built in 1914, and still houses its original clock chimes.

An old building with a modern take on Restorations. Worthy of your visit. Enjoy the many floors, paintings, photos, memorabilias, and Fine Architecture. An Impressive Building.

This building is huge. Not only on the height but on the width too. If you walking on Boulevard René you will see it across the street from Cathedral of Marie-Reine-Du-Monde. Worth a quick stop.
