History: Verdun’s Bannantyne Avenue

The weekend’s Centre d’histoire piece evokes Verdun’s history via a 1973 photo of Bannantyne Avenue versus today.

The Journal also put up a collection of what it calls 16 photos of the city from 110 years ago, but they’re specifically postcards, some of them tinted, not simply photos. Nice though.

CBC looks at the 1950s cutting of trees on Mount Royal for “moral” reasons, and how this is still affecting the mountain’s tree coverage today: ash trees became more prevalent after the cut, but now they have to be cut themselves for other reasons.
