The 1950’s were a glorious time in Montreal. Language laws weren’t a thing, the Champlain Bridge wasn’t a total clusterfuck, and the city was gearing towards Expo ’67 and a bright future.

Take a look at some real footage of Montreal in its glory years below and be swept up in the nostalgia.
Was Montreal way more appealing back in 1957? Has the city changed for the better? Up or downvote in the comments below.
