Ferdie in Montreal

Montreal, Quebec

It was autumn of 2002 when we went to Montreal and I took this picture of the road while we were driving.
Just a unique solitary building that caught my fancy.
St. Joseph's Oratory seems to be a must-visit for Catholic tourists. With its majestic dome, the Oratory is the most important pilgrimage center dedicated to Saint Joseph in the world.
Candles lit by the faithful and pilgrims inside the St. Joseph's Oratory.
The Montreal City Hall. It was from this balcony that French President General de Gaulle uttered his famous “Vive le Québec libre!” ("Long live free Québec") during a state visit in 1967.
Me at Place Jacques-Cartier at the heart of Old Montreal. A major gathering place and entertainment site, Place Jacques-Cartier draws passers-by and visitors who enjoy street artists, roving entertainers, jugglers, mimes, face painters and caricaturists.
One of the buskers working the crowd at Old Montreal.
Me with the cobblestone streets of Old Montreal in the background.
At the fountain near Place Jacques-Cartier.
This was taken at a vista point in Mount Royal. This 101-hectare park occupies part of the mountain that lies in the midst of Montreal island, and includes the highest spot in the city (234m).
Here's a picture that shows part of the Geodesic Dome of the US Pavilion at World Expo '67. The Montreal World's Fair coincided with Canada's 100th anniversary of "Confederation" in 1967.
