Photo AlbumMay 28, '10 11:02 AM
by Les for everyone
Just another round of Montreal pictures from the tops of some buildings & of course streetviews too. Now some will look familkar,and some may have been posted before,some sre from different photographers who took similar shots over the years, I have been relatively careful to not just duplicate my other albums.......but take the tour & maybe you will appreciate some views of Montreal, you haven't thought of for a while, the years range quite a bit from pre PVM days to about the 70's ...... -Cheers , HF&RV

Greetings from Florida! Nice to see olde Montreal, even in pictures. Makes me realize how little attention we paid to our surroundings when we lived there. So many changes in the past 46 years! ( yes, we've been away that long) We have visited over the years. Montreal has changed, but Verdun hasn't changed much.
You do a great job Les, always at work on this site. Thanks for all you do. I'm sure everyone appreciates your work. Victah (formerly of Verdun.)

Merci Victah !,....... I too am amazed at how many decades have passed,but it's neat to try & recall those old montreal Days, even if only in pics...... Cheers ! HF&RV
Hope your sailing isn't spoiled for a while with old BP's accident.The whole Florida coast is fantastic & I hope it stays that way. Many years ago we would make our way to Indian Rocks Beach area,Clearwater etc etc I loved Florida but have only been back in passing via the international airport..
I kow many things must have changed there too, from what I remember it as.......Great Steaks Btw: Most people don't know that Florida aside from citrus has some fantastic beef products...Have one for me Victah.....and I'll toast you & your family here in Victoria shortly.............. Les F
