Sign's Sign's ,Everywhere Are Signs.......

            Concordia gets into some interesting projects, this one is saving some of the signs that have come down around Montreal over the years,..good on them to keep an area to remind us of some things gone from our past...  A lot of city's were far ahead of Montreal in saving some of there 'Colourful Past' ......LasVegas ,Vancouver, to mention a couple have museums to some of their 'Signs of the Times'

 Checkout the Montreal Sign site,......navigate through the site ,it's somewhat interesting ,although there are noticeable absences' of historic old relics ,that (imho) should be included ...However here you go     http://signs.concordia.ca/

In looking at this photo ,I think it is the 'newest' of the oldest type of StCatherine Street shots we've posted, I think I just took for grantef that it was from the 60's but when I checked out the two movies on the marquis, Boxcar Bertha (1972) & Werewolves on wheels (1971) then it clearly hast o be at a mini,mum of 1972.....one of the last few years I spent in Montreal: ( Yea , I know . Who Cares !) hahahahaha Well the old ads used to say I.G.A. cares , remember IGA the 50 club in Lasalle was right above one (that's why I remember the ad....)
