Nothing is worse than someone seeing your old drivers license (or a dated photo in general) only for them to say "Oh my God you look so different!" Well, duh, years have gone by. People change, and so do cities, it's just a lot more fun to see how a metropolis has gotten older rather than having your own old age made apparent.

Montréal dans ta Pipe, in the video series Les Hasards du Temps, lets you glimpse into Montreal's past and basically do the whole before-and-after/present thing, with everyone's feelings left intact...just don't comment how the city got fat, 'cuz even inanimate urban spaces don't like to hear they've put on weight.

Take a journey from past to present through the third Les Hasards du temps video below:
