Everyone loves a little blast from the past, the specialty of this Twitter account that shares old-timey photos of Montreal.
Archives de Montreal, a library of archives from the city, was created in 1913 and shares photographs and documents from Montreal, dating all the way back to 1796.
The website, which claims to have one million photographs of the city, has modernized its sharing network by spreading the old-school love on Twitter.
- Old Montreal has been transformed into a 1940s movie set
- Check out the differences between the Turcot Interchange between 2004 and now (PHOTOS)
- This is what 1950s city officials wanted Montreal to look like in the year 2000
- This is how much money you need to make to live alone in Montreal in 2019
Like looking through an old family photo album, the account does a great job at sharing moments from our city from decades prior.
Recently, the account shared pictures of what is now the Quartier des Spectacles from 1964, Mont Royal in the roaring 20s, the Bonaventure Expressway in 1972, and what the corner of Ste. Catherine and Saint Laurent looked in 1925.
Imagine how we’ll revel at what Montreal 2019 looked like when we look back at the city in 2065.
