A reproduction of a hand drawing of the proposal for a major extension of the Sun Life Building, ca. 1926.
Hugh Griffith-Jones (1872-1947) was born in wisconsin. He practiced architecture in Chicago and later in New York before moving to Montreal in 1908 where he took up the post of assistant chief architect for the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. The Montreal Windsor Station extension was his first important work in Canada. Jones set up his own firm in Montreal in 1911. He accomplished a number of railway stations, including Tornoto's Union station in 1927. It appears as though John Wilson Wood worked as a draughtsman for Jones on the Sun Life extension proposal and on perhaps others.
