Montreal

While Vancouver freezes with record low temperatures I'm spending time in drizzly Montreal where the current temp. is +5º C.

-0059-2
Henderson & Co.
I'm a big fan of old signage.

-0064
Dawson College is just a block from where I'm staying in Westmount. 
Like so many historic buildings in Montreal this one started out as a religious institution.
This building, built around 1897, was the Mother House of the Congrégation de Notre Dame and is now part of the modern college.
