Canada - Quebec - Frontenac Castle 01 by GiardQatar Canada - Quebec - Frontenac Castle 01 by GiardQatar
In the late 19th century, William Van Horne, General Manager of Canadian Pacific (CP) Railway, began building the hotel as the ideal stopover for CP travelers. Van Horne retained the services of New York architect Bruce Price (father of Emily Post), who had already designed Montreal's Windsor Station. Drawing on the architectural styles of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, Price immortalized the history of the two great powers that had occupied Quebec City's highest promontory. (Ref. [link])

Thanks for your comment ... appreciated. About the wall, I was thinking to crop it out at one stage of the process. However, after some tests I have decided to leave a part of it there and see it as a kind of a front frame .... but I will may be revise it eventually ...
