Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Considered North America's most “European” city, Montréal is known for its culture, sophisticated population and its amazing architectural history. The latest title in the hugely popular Then and Now series takes readers to Québec's largest city, Montréal, for an amazing past and present tour which includes the following.

• A rich historical overview written by Alan Hustak (a journalist for the Montréal Gazette) describes Montréal'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.

• Originally named Ville-Marie, the settlement became known as Mont Royal, after the tallest of the hills overlooking the river valley. Readers will marvel at how much this modern metropolis has evolved in its history.

• Dozens of photographs show how some of Montréal's most important landmarks looked long ago and how they look today.

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

Though much has changed since the city was first settled in the 17th century, readers will agree that Montréal's charm will never fade.
