Photographer's Note

The Botanical Garden was projected by Marie-Victorin, F.S.C. (April 3, 1885 – July 15, 1944). he was a Canadian member of Brothers of the Christian Schools and a noted botanist in Quebec, Canada. He is known as the father of the Botanical Garden of Montreal.

The Reception Gardens are an essential part of the Administration Building, designed by Lucien Kérouac (1886 – 1951). This Art Deco-style public building was built in the 1930's, at a time of crisis in-between wars that required imagination and solidarity. More precisely, the fountains, built in 1937-1938 and designed by Henri Teuscher, include reliefs of great delicacy carved in granite by sculptor Henri Hébert.
