Montreal Star opening day of EXPO 67

Recommended Posts

I was cleaning out the  home office and went through a filing cabinet I had not opened in 22 years. There is the back a treasure. Full copy of the Montreal Star dated Friday,April 28th, 1967.
The theme: Opening Day of Expo 67.  All 145 pages in full color.   Back in 1995 I knew I had something special  and had it  laminated page by page. Put it in that cabinet and forgot about it.  A little yellow  but still in near perfect shape. Looking forward to an afternoon  of reminiscing  about my teenage days. Virtually  living  there and having visited over 100 times....

 

PS: one of the big laughs are all the advertisements. Virtually every Montreal restaurant long gone.Parking off site  50 cents with a free shuttle transfer.

Wonderful!  Wish I had such foresight about the NYWF.

That's incredible.   You have a wonderful treasure.   I think it's even more interesting because the Star, once the largest circulation newspaper in Canada, is long gone.  Montreal's newspapers used a great deal of ink celebrating Expo 67 throughout it entire run.
