This branch of Pharmacie Jean Coutu on the corner of Ste Catherine and Metcalfe in downtown Montreal must have had a medical connection when it was first constructed. I say this because the decoration on the corners at the roofline feature caducei.
This view of the Metcalfe side of the building highlights the caduceus decoration at the corners and the diamond motifs below the windows.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
