Montreal Then  free pdf Considered North America's most "European" city, Montreal is known for its culture, sophisticated population, and its amazing architectural history. This addition to the hugely popular "Then and Now" series takes readers to Quebec's charming capital city, Montreal, for an amazing past and present tour. A rich historical overview written by Alan Hustak (a journalist for the Montreal Gazette), it describes Montreal's development from a fur trading outpost on the banks of the St. Lawrence River to its present incarnation as the business and cultural center of Canada.

Fascinating side-by-side then-and-now images of popular destinations like the Windsor Hotel, St. Ann's Market, Christ Church Cathedral, and Montreal Harbor showcase Montreal's finest architecture and views.
