This desk was acquired from Bank of Montreal’s Head Office at First Canadian Place (Toronto Financial District) in the mid 1990’s. The Bank of Montreal was established in Canada’s oldest banks, established in 1817 as Montreal Bank.
The desk was released from the bank during the period that Matthew William Barrett was Chairman of the Bank(1990-1999) and coincided with changes in the bank’s furnishings, office decor, layout and even operating divisions. It was a time leading up to the Bank’s increased focus on online banking and the launch of the mbanx project.
Given the desk’s design, quality of wood and quality of fabrication, it is likely it was used by one or more of the Bank’s top executives and possibly the very desk upon which the mbanx project was approved. If this desk could speak what stories it could tell!
