See the web tour

Introduction:

Précieux témoins de leur époque, les peintres de la communauté juive de Montréal nous offrent un regard unique sur l'atmosphère qui régnait dans la ville, entre 1930 et 1948, évoquant tant l'histoire des classes populaires que la misère engendrée par la crise économique.

Voici en complément à l'exposition, Peintres juifs de Montréal. Témoins de leur époque, 1930-1948, une sélection de photographies et d'objets tirés de la collection du Musée McCord.

Keys to History:

During the first decades of the 20th century, St. Lawrence Boulevard became the heart of Montreal's Chinese and Jewish neighbourhoods. The stores and businesses there sold immigrants products from their countries of origin. In this area, they also built their places of worship, assembly and recreation. The Yiddish theatre and vaudeville was then in their heyday.

Keys to History:

In the early years of the 20th century, the pace of the rural exodus increased, with large numbers of French and English Canadians moving from the country to the city. Montreal was a magnet for people who wanted to improve their lot and start a new life. This migration was a consequence of the metropolis' remarkable economic growth.

What:

This photograph is a good illustration of the hustle and bustle that characterized Montreal. The sidewalks are crowded with people, carters are hauling a variety of merchandise, a streetcar can be seen approaching and the skyline is filled with poles and electrical wires.

Where:

The intersection of Ste. Catherine Street and St. Lawrence (St. Laurent) Boulevard was one of Montreal's busiest. Fogarty's shoe store can be seen on the corner.

When:

The Fogarty Company was a well-established Montreal shoe retailer active since the 1870s. It moved to this location around 1889.

Who:

In the early 1900s, most of the people living in this neighbourhood were immigrants. It was the heart of Montreal's Jewish quarter.

Suburban Living Thanks to the Telephone

While the telephone was becoming an everyday item, Canadian cities were experiencing major population growth. In 1901, 34.8 percent of Canadians lived in cities of over 100,000 inhabitants; this proportion had climbed to 53 percent by 1931. The populations of greater Montreal and metro Toronto grew spectacularly, and by 1931 had reached 1 million and 818,000, respectively.

Theoretically, the telephone, like means of transportation, overcame distances and reduced the need for proximity. Did that spell the end of cities? Of course not. But the middle classes, especially, preferred the suburbs. With a streetcar system, outlying areas could attract people looking for peace and quiet, away from the hubbub of the city.

What:

All over the country, suburbs were sprouting up like mushrooms. Some were industrial, while others were solely residential.

Where:

The town of Outremont, on the slopes of Mount Royal, is now in the heart of greater Montreal, but was considered to be a suburb in 1910.

When:

When it was founded in 1895, Outremont had some 1,000 residents. By 1911 the number had quadrupled to 4,820.

Who:

In the early 20th century, Outremont had French-speaking and English-speaking residents, along with a large Jewish population.

Keys to History:

Prince Arthur Street. The street was named in honour of the prince in 1890, around the time that this house was built at the corner of Cadieux Street (today's De Bullion). In 1906, the house was occupied by the family of Martin Eagan, an office employee. When this picture was taken, ten years later, it was inhabited by the Eiserman family. There were many other Jewish families in the neighbourhood, as well as Francophone Catholics.

Keys to History:

The Italians, while fewer in numbers than the Jews, also constituted one of Montreal's larger ethnic groups. Many of them worked in construction. By 1910 they were beginning to form a distinctive neighbourhood in the north end of the city and were already served by two parishes.

A few thousand other Europeans had settled in Montreal, along with a few hundred Chinese, who had begun to establish their own neighbourhood on De La Gauchetière Street. Montreal was beginning to look like an ethnic mosaic, even though people of French and British ancestry still formed the two largest groups.

What:

The area around the intersection of Vitré and St. Urbain streets was part of Montreal's Chinatown, which began to develop in the late 1800s.

Where:

De La Gauchetière Street constituted the backbone of Chinatown; that was where the largest number of Chinese businesses and homes were located. But they also extended into the cross streets, especially Clark and St. Urbain.

When:

Chinese immigrants began arriving in Montreal in the 1880s, but their numbers increased sharply around the turn of the century.

Who:

The Chinese in Montreal were Cantonese. Their numbers rose from 888 in 1901 to 1,335 ten years later. In the early years, they worked chiefly in the laundry business, but they gradually became increasingly involved in the grocery trade, importing and the restaurant business.

Description:

The word "synagogue" comes from Greek and refers to a congregation in a city or neighbourhood. In concrete terms, it means the place where the Jewish community gathers for prayers, celebrations and religious instruction. The Shaar Hashomayim community is one of Montreal's oldest Jewish congregations. It was founded in 1846 by English, German and Polish Jews who originally met in a rented space on St. James Street (today Rue Saint-Jacques). The Shaar Hashomayim synagogue has moved three times. The first synagogue was built in 1859 at 41 St. Constant Street, today Rue De Bullion, south of De La Gauchetière. In 1885, the synagogue at 59 McGill College Avenue was erected, and served the community until 1920. In the meantime, the congregation became open to all forms of Judaism. The growing community became rather constricted in its McGill College Avenue building, and had the current synagogue built in Westmount.

A Changing Society

Population growth wrought major social changes. The ethnic diversity of the city's population increased significantly as more and more immigrants arrived. While the continuing exodus from rural Quebec allowed French Canadians to maintain their majority position at slightly over 60% of the city's population, Montrealers of British ancestry saw their relative proportion drop from a third to a quarter.

The big change was the increase in the other ethnic groups. In the 19th century, they had accounted for less than 2.5% of the Montreal population; by 1901 their proportion had reached 5% and by 1911 close to 11%.

Over half of them were of Jewish ancestry. Concentrated in the area on either side of St. Lawrence Boulevard, the Jewish population, with its Yiddish language and culture, consisted chiefly of workers employed in the clothing industry who resided in the vicinity of the workshops. The Jewish community was served by many synagogues and cultural and charitable organizations as well as a daily newspaper published in Yiddish.

What:

By 1914 the Montreal Jewish community already had several synagogues. The congregations of the various synagogues were often associated with their European country of origin.

Where:

This synagogue was on St. Urbain Street, between Dorchester (now René Lévesque) Boulevard and Ste. Catherine Street. It was right in the midst of the Jewish quarter, which lay on either side of St. Lawrence Boulevard.

When:

Mass immigration of east European Jews to Montreal began in the 1880s, but really took off in the early 1900s. The persecutions suffered by the Jews, especially in tsarist Russia, caused many of them to flee their country for Canada.

Who:

According to the 1901 census, 6,790 Montrealers were of Jewish origin, representing 2.5% of the city's population. Ten years later this number had reached 27,948 (5.9 %).

Keys to History:

The Joseph family became established in Canada when seventeen-year-old Henry Joseph emigrated from England in 1792 at the urging of his uncle Aaron Hunt, a Trois-Rivières businessman. From his first ventures as supplier to the army at Sorel and to the fur traders in the west, Henry built up an extensive business as commission merchant and shipper. His four surviving sons benefited from their father's experience and success, three of them establishing themselves in Montreal. Abraham, featured in the above picture, settled in Quebec City where he made his mark in banking and shipping. He is shown here with his twelve sons and daughters in Kincardain, the family home. His wife Sophia David had died in 1866.

Description:

This list of gifts presented at the wedding of Ezekiel Hart in 1794 forms part of the Hart Family papers. It contains the names of the oldest Jewish families in Quebec, including the Levys and the Judahs, who were related to the Harts. The Hart Family papers give information on family and business activities over the period 1760 to 1843. The earliest documents concern Aaron and Ezekiel Hart, who settled in Trois-Rivières in 1760 and established a name for themselves in business and politics.
