What Downtown Montreal Looked Like In The 1960s (10 photos)

Get outta 2014 and come back to Montreal's glory years of the 1960's, back when the Expo '67 was just getting prepped, language laws weren't a thing, and everything was simpler, probably because we didn't have internet or Netflix. The 60's were an epic time all across North America, and even though we (well, most of us) weren't alive to see it happen, it doesn't mean we can't relive some of the magic.

All taken in the city of Montreal in the magical year of 1967, these photos reek of nostalgia. Spot all the Montreal landmarks and see how they've changed.

For more 1960's love, check out pics of Montreal's construction, hilariously sexist ads, Christmas in Parc La Fontaine, La Ronde, and a street view of St. Catherine. If you couldn't tell, we're a big fan of the 60's.

People were generally more badass in '67

Now that's a street corner I could work, yah mean?

Metro station looking exactly the same...not sure if that's a good thing or not.

Anyone else getting weird phallic-vibes off of this pic?

Like you don't want to get in on all that summer fun.

1967? 2014? Like you could even tell the difference.

If you look closely, you can see some pedestrians nearly getting hit by a car. Some things never change.

Then and now, you still lookin' fine Montreal
