Stone carving – Westmount City Hall.
Stairs behind a building on Greene Avenue & Saint Catherine Street.
Nice old sign on a door behind Greene Avenue & Saint Catherine Street.
Many years ago, the trees in Westmount’s parks had their species’ names nailed into the bark.
From the Montreal Gazette, April 14, 1920:
“Alderman Scott, Park Commissioner…said that it had
been decided to place metal tags on the different kinds of
shrubbery in the parks and also signs on trees denoting the
common name as well as the botanical name.”
Over time, vandalism caused the removal of these plaques. I was fortunate to find one, still extant, in King George Park.
The colour of the grass, in this park, never ceases to amaze me!
Overlooked plaque, presented to the the City of Westmount during the International Year of Peace recognized by the the United Nations in 1986.
A former “stream” – currently dry. I recall the City filling this stream with goldfish over the summer months.
