Holt Renfew, Montreal

Holt Renfew, Montreal

During their Centenary year in 1937, Holt Renfew, opened a new store in Sherbrooke St, Montreal. The streamline style building was designed by Ross and MacDonald, one of Canada's most prolific architectural firms.

Holt Renfew are promoted as sellers of luxury goods so it is not surprising to find that their early days are heavy influenced by Canada's fur trade and animal motifs are featured on the front of the store.
