Commerce Court North in Toronto. I love this building, it was the tallest building in the British Commonwealth upon completion in 1930.

Great photos, Richy! Gotta love the Louisiana State Capitol!

Here is one of my favorite art deco buildings in New Orleans, the 355 foot Hibernia Bank Building, built in 1921:

Fort Worth has quite a few cool Deco buildings, but these two are my favorites:

Sinclair Building (plus the Kress Building as a bonus in one shot):
