A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 2 along with a local Ontario Street Culture. A street that was named after Lake Ontario in 1842. Ontario being the Huron word for one of our "Great Lake" out of five that was once a border between the Huron and the Iroquois communities.

I love second hand stores. I love browsing in what is usually a clutter of all kinds of second hand "things" in a complete disorder. I always feel I just might find the one and only "treasure" worth millions hidden somewhere. Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 3 is a good example.

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 4 and a Société de Transport de Montréal that operates and maintains our metro service and its 68 metro stations and four different lines. An STM that also contributes to the  improvement and the maintenance of our local transit network.

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 5 and 876 km of bicycle lanes. Montreal is definitely a bicycle city adapted to bicycle transport, bicycle recreation, bicycle exercise and bicycle sport. The large number of "vélos" everywhere is definitely a confirmation.

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 9 with signs that confirm our right hand traffic and that tell us what the speed limit is, where to park or not to park, where to play golf, and so on. Whatever their message, signs play an important role in our public environment.

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 11 with different backstreets with different wooden fences. Each with its own design, its own color, its own personality and its own degree of maintenance. Fencing is an important addition to a property, fences bring comfort and reassurance.

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 12 of the George-Étienne-Cartier Square and Park surrounded by St-Henri and St-Ambroise streets, close to the St-Rémi tunnel in Le Sud-Ouest borough in the City of Montreal. Also an interesting story.

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 14 along with a very peaceful and very quiet moment in the Parc Maisonneuve in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie. A nice "motorcycle ride" between two seasons, the end of our Summer season and the beginning of Fall, our most colorful season.

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 16 along with a moment of peace easily found in a section called "les étangs" in our "fabulous" Jardin Botanique de Montréal. A bench or a garden chair and that's it, peace. We hope you enjoy this very brief moment!

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 17 and a colorful home office that can be a space designated in a person's residence for official business purposes. A home office that can also be used to describe the administrative corporate headquarters of a large enterprise.


100x100

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 18 of streets in downtown Montreal where corporate headquarters and skyscrapers cannot, by law, be higher then the Mount Royal mountain. Streets such Ste-Catherine East and West divided in two parts by the St-Laurent Boulevard. . 


100x100

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 19 of a backstreet with its interesting wire netting fences. Fences to define boundaries between properties and to create barriers between private and public space. Fences that also provide security against all kinds of intrusions.

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 20 to discover the many different green arrangements, colorful flower beds and various garden ornaments. Summer arrangements that change colors in the Fall, that spend Winter under the snow and that are nurtered again in the Spring.

Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 21 Une zone boisée, le Parc Bois-des-Pères situé dans Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie entre la rue Dickson et l’Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, propriétaire du boisé. This is Montreal by the way, sometimes English, sometimes French.

Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 23 in Saint-Henri part of Le Sud-Ouest. First what seems to be a cement or concrete company and then what is left of the old Canada Malting Co. built in 1905 and now located in the City du Havre in the Ville-Marie borough.


100x100

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 24 and a stroll in the Little Italy on a street with many different outdoor staircases. Two historical reasons for all our outdoor staircases, to save on heating costs and to give tenants a separate entrance.

A Montreal Summer Gallery Photos 25 and a Sunday afternoon in the Quartier Chinois in downtown Montreal. Definitely during a special event but, unfortunately, I forgot to ask, next time definitely. That said, it was a very colorful and very pleasant moment.
