Delusions of Grandeur: Plans for the Proposed Prince Rupert Hotel

November 20, 1988 – January 15, 1989

Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery

An exhibit showcasing the Rattenbury architectural plans for the Prince Rupert Hotel, which was never built. Rattenbury was the man responsible for the Empress Hotel, the provincial legislative buildings, the Crystal Gardens and the Bank of Montreal in Bastion Square. The plans and drawings on display were discovered in the attic of the Oak Bay school when snowfall threatened the already decaying integrity of the roof.
