Old Montreal New free pdf Excerpt from Old Montreal New: Illustrated With Over One Thousand Engravings of the City's Chief Institutions, Churches Statues, Homes and Citizens, Both of the Past and of to-Day Since the world began its Creator planned for Montreal. The beauty of this city has been handed down through the ages. The beasts of the field and the birds of the air, and for aught we know a human race have enjoyed this spot from time eternal. We who love it now can tell of but a few years of all that time- less than four hundred years of the ages that old Mount Royal has stood guard over our home. We only know that in 1535 a white man, the first of our race, Jacques Cartier, gazed upon this scene, and because he was the first his name is deathless. He sailed away. What would the world do to-day, less than four hundred years later, if an adventurous captain should report the discovery of such a land? Yet we know that seventy years elapsed before the next white brother came. Two generations had come and gone and the story of the mountain, the island, and the river which Cartier brought back to France had been lost in antiquity while Mount Royal waited these years in solitude. Then came Champlain, the founder of Quebec, and looked upon the scene and sailed away. In 1642, one hundred and seven years after the first report of the new land, came Maisonneuve, the pioneer, the builder, and began our home for us- and through the few short years since then we have a history - one of the most fascinating to be sure, of any city upon this continent, and one which has been told in many ways and at many times. The story though old is ever new, and it is the purpose of this work to tell the story of these years through the interesting medium of the photograph- to illustrate the growth and development of this great city from the earliest recorded times down to the date of going to press.
