Montreal has a very distinct vibe and unique style. At least in today's world, but in 1955 it looked completely different. The neon signs that lined the streets of downtown made it look like Vegas or at the very least Atlantic City. One of the first things that hits everyone when looking at vintage photos of Montreal is how it looks so very ... American.
This picture is a perfect example. It was taken in 1955 at the Verdun Motor Corporation on Wellington Street. If I didn't know this was taken in Montreal I'd swear this was just some random American car dealership. I wonder how many of those cars are still cruising around today?
