Doors Of Justice (Edifice Ernest-Cormier)

I have always liked the front doors of the Court of Appeals in Montreal.  They are very intimidating and powerful.  The pillars in front of the doors, further enhance these two characteristics.

The building is located on Notre Dame street and the actual name of the building is Edifice Ernest-Cormier.  It was the second courthouse in Montreal to bear the name of Palais de Justice de Montreal.

The building was build between 1922 and 1926.  Ernest Cormier was one of three architects who designed the building and after he died in 1980, the building was named after him.
