Université de Montréal, Montréal, Quebec, CanadaHistoric 1928 Photo
This photo is just amazing. This complex was built with nothing around it. Compare to this modern-day Google Maps aerial view.
Caption from Art Deco digital collection at McGill:
A photograph of the Université de Montréal campus in an aerial view, ca. 1928. Architect Ernest Cormier  (1885-1980) is well-known for his central complex of buildings at the  Université de Montréal, considered to be of Art Deco design. It is a  composition of simple forms of planes and surfaces in successive relief,  emphasizing vertical lines. The light buff vitrified brick has  trimmings of Missisquoi marble. Cormier’s former house on Pine Avenue in  Montreal is one of the finest examples of Art Deco homes in the world.  Student Papers Collection, Rare Books and Special Collections
