Blogger’s Apartment Featured in Museum Display

Each year in Montreal, The McCord Museum puts together an exhibit for display outside on McGill College Avenue in the city’s downtown.  This year it is called Harry Sutcliffe – Strolling Through Montreal and features photographs from the 1920s and 30s.

The photo below from the exhibition shows Sutcliffe’s foresight. To some this will appear to be a shot of a pond in a park taken during the 1920s. But as my charming mug and manicured finger indicate, it is actually a picture of my apartment, some 80 years before I moved in. How did he know?

I sure wish I was paying the 1920s rent!



Me DCMontreal – Deegan Charles Stubbs – is a Montreal writer born and raised who likes to establish balance and juxtapositions; a bit of this and a bit of that, a dash of Yin and a soupçon of Yang, some Peaks and an occasional Frean and maybe a bit of a sting in the tail!
