⥝ digital A Walking Tour of Montreal - Golden Square Mile (English Edition) ⦍ ePUB Author Doug Gelbert 䋳 There is no better way to see Canada than on foot And there is no better way to appreciate what you are looking at than with a walking tour Whether you are preparing for a road trip or just out to look at your own town in a new way, a downloadable walking tour from walkthetown.com is ready to explore when you are.Each walking tour describes historical and architectural landmarks and provides pictures to help out when those pesky street addresses are missing Every tour also includes a quick primer on identifying architectural styles seen on North American streets.This is all you need to know about how important St Catherine Street is when the Montreal Canadians win the Stanley Cup, as they have done than any other National Hockey League franchise, this is the street the team uses for its parade route The emergence of St Catherine Street can be or less traced back to 1891 and a decision by Henry Morgan to move uptown and away from the financial houses of Old Montreal.In short order six large department stores had lined up along St Catherine Street and Montreal had a retail artery the equal of any town in North America The move coincided with the development of new transportation options as the city began to spread out Many of Canadas business and industrial leaders settled nearby under the slopes of Mount Royal that came to be known as the Golden Square Mile.It was said that 70% of all the wealth in Canada could be found behind the gates of the resplendent mansions on the blocks on either side of Sherbrooke Street A Whos Who of North American architects was busy on residential commissions and on retail work two blocks south on St Catherine Street.But times change There was a Great Depression, a major world war and shifting attitudes In 1977 the passage of the Charter of the French Language made French the mandatory language when dealing with companies with French speaking staff Many English oriented businesses decamped from Montreal to Toronto It was the culmination of an era that saw the decline of Anglo Canadian influence in the province Those elegant mansions were regarded as a nagging symbol of decades of French Canadian oppression and the wrecking balls flew with abandon.These days only a fraction of the opulence of the Golden Square Mile remains, almost nothing south of Sherbrooke Street In the place of the historic mansions are mostly faceless steel and concrete high rise towers The Canadians have not paraded down St Catherine Street since 1993 and probably would not recognize much of what they would ride past today We will take a look along St Catherine Street and Sherbrooke Street and see what heritage buildings still stand and we will begin our explorations where Henry Morgan set up shop 125 years ago ATHENS FREE WALKING TOUR Athens Free The first and best free walking tour in For years, countless travellers have joined our walks, making Free Walking Tour a favorite introduction Walking Groundhog One of Woodstock s features for Groundhog Day movie enthusiasts is the that Days Committee has developed You can download pdf Split Every Rain or Shine Split NO on Trip Advisor day at , Meet us Golden Gate Croatia, just look blue umbrella Free Reykjavik Tour original funniest Run by local comedians, it entertaining, informative useful The Rocks Tours Original Sydney My family took personal had lovely morning, streets alleyways, learning about history settling Daily Best Things To Do Portland Fun award winning events explore excitement, history, food, architecture, neighborhoods, bridges, parks, fountains, artwork, secrets, plain weird Florence Florence It FREE, no tariff applied asked Gratuities will be happily appreciated NEW Europe Cities ensure everyone, regardless their budget, able to experience world class cities we operate Discover New tours you find way capture energy Manhattan Visit food with Bruce ScherLook Up, Seattle A Pike Read Look Place Market Doug Gelbert Rakuten Kobo There better see America than foot And there Portland, Maine Maine Kindle edition Download once read your device, PC, phones tablets Use like Doggin Maryland Places Hike Doggin Hike With Your Dog In State shipping qualifying offers Have ever Hawley, Pennsylvania Wikipedia Hawley borough Lackawaxen River Wayne County, population was time United States Census James St Hilary de Is this ancestor Explore genealogy James born abt Harcourt, Eure, Normandie, France died Field Dalling, Walsingham Guide Old House Styles Architecture style guide examples OldHouses Hotel Roosevelt fire Hotel fire, December worst Jacksonville, Florida, seen since Great Fire contributed Alpha H Glen Rock, NJ High School Alphabetical Listing H indexed year Created updated Peter Ross Home Career Page GR Class Reunions Rock News A Walking Tour of Montreal - Golden Square Mile (English Edition)
