Montreal (Spring Fever)

 Brick, mostly in quartier St-Henri

 Except...always a surprise to come across these litle old farmhouses in the mostly late-19th c. industrial/residential quartier, St-Henri

 Carre St-Louis.
 Carré St-Louis
 Hotel de Ville St.
 Plateau Mont-Royal

 Hotel de Ville St.

 Another surprise. I think 18th century, and atypical. Vieux Montreal. Below, as well.

 rue de la Commune.
 There's a lot of 20th c. architectural history in there.
 Nore Dame de Bonsecours. Welcome to the town, boys.
