Then and now, this spot offers a remarkable view of Montreal. A careful study of the shadows on several visits gave an accurate idea of the month and time, while the railing provided a good reference point. I could not use the buildings in the distance, as they were unfocused in Notman's photograph. There must be an incredible number of photographs taken everyday from this vantage point. In my shot I managed to capture three other people taking snapshots. What I like the most in this set of photographs is the opportunity to compare the clothing that people wear. The change is incredible.
