Keys to History

This picture shows a small part of the switching yard of Viger Station in 1910. Several blocks of the working-class Ste. Marie neighbourhood had just been demolished to enlarge these facilities. An old section of Notre Dame Street (northeast of Old Montreal) had been demolished. In the background, Sohmer Park can be seen, with its concert hall and its big trees. The park, which became more and more an integral part of the industrial environment, would be closed in 1919.
