Sherbrooke Street West at Cote St. Antoine

Sherbrooke Street West at Cote St.  Antoine

In the 1800s Sherbrooke Street West turned directly into Cote St. Antoine – it did not continue west as it does today.

There was a toll-bar at this junction. It seems it was quite profitable. The Legislative Assembly for the Province of Canada, in 1854, reported that the St. Antoine toll-bar collected 817 pounds, 17 shillings and 4 pence in the period between December 1852 and March 1853.
