McCord has support for move

Not a lot of news value here, but the McCord museum says it has the support of photographers and historians in its search for larger digs. The question of the space they wanted, but which has since been promised for a public park, is mentioned in a noncommittal way, as is the museum’s wish for public support.

We have a lot of historical museums here. There are two in Old Montreal barely a block apart, and there’s one over on St Helen’s Island, and there are a lot of smaller more specialized ones dotted around the place, from the tiny firemen’s museum that’s open once a week, to the surprise ancient farmhouse that stands where Point St Charles peters out south of Wellington. Do we need to put public money into giving the McCord new digs? Maybe we do. I don’t know.
