Long Description:
Texte de la plaque:

Ce haut lieu du centre-ville montréalais constitue un bel exemple du style néo-gothique au Canada. Si avec les arcs brisés, les contreforts et les clochetons crénelés lextérieur est fort ornementé, lintérieur reste sobre, mais dune grande élégance. Construit entre 1857 et 1860 selon le design de lillustre architecte Frank Wills, la cathédrale reflète lidéal anglican de lépoque, soit un retour à lÉglise du Moyen Age anglais dans la liturgie et dans larchitecture. Elle sert léminente communauté anglicane de Montréal qui a tant contribué au XIXe siècle à lessor économique et culturel du Canada.

Text of the plaque:

This landmark of downtown Montréal is an excellent example of Gothic Revival style in Canada. The detailed exterior of pointed arches, buttresses and crenellated turrets conceals a sober but elegant interior. Built between 1857 and 1860 to a design by the distinguished architect Frank Wills, the structure reflects an Anglican ideal of its time: namely a return to the English medieval Church in both liturgy and architecture. This cathedral served an influential Anglican community in Montréal, which was prominent during the 19th century in the economic and cultural development of Canada.
