Montreal Then and Now

Recommended Posts

https://www.mtlblog.com/opinions/canada/qc/montreal/14-photos-of-1960s-montreal-that-show-just-how-much-the-city-has-transformed

 

This is from a blog created by someone who loves Montreal and has an awareness of the role history has played, in good times and bad, in its incredible growth.  The 1960s era photographs are compared to Montreal locations today.  The comparison of the Montreal skyline during the year of Expo and that skyline today is remarkable.

I hope the link works.

Your link works, but their link on their page goes only to an article on the history of the Metro rather than the promised 14 comparisons (?)

Edit: Never mind - now seeing the comparisons on the page you linked to.

Glad you found it, Wayne.  It's interesting; especially Parc Maisonneuve.

It's safe to say that nothing at Expo was empty in 1967.

PS:  I suspect the person posting the vintage photographs might not have been aware of how large La Ronde was during Expo.
