Odurandina -- wasn't trying to be exhaustive -- but thanks for picking up the loose ball and taking it for a run :cool:

There are several arches in the building which houses the West End Museum on the corner of the Old West End and Causeway St.

I have always liked the way that I.M.Pei perforated his otherwise very square Christian Science colonnade using Romanesque arches. It might be overlooked as just a nod to the Mother Church, but I think they are a deft choice in themselves.
