Lost Montreal: 3 pieces

24 Heures is doing a series on “lost Montreal” with, so far, a look at the old Montreal library on Sherbrooke Street – seems odd to call the building “une anomalie anachronique” when we have similar buildings functioning as a courthouse and a museum, among others – it’s a classic Greek form based on the Parthenon.

Also in the series is a piece about Plaza St-Hubert back in the days of neon signs – “Time Square”? – and the zoo in Lafontaine Park which existed between 1957 and 1988.
