That's the one. I saw the painting on Canada Day and went back the next weekend to pick up a copy.

I never realized how badly Sorel was ruined.

Wow, I had no idea that Sorel was once so beautiful. What a disaster!

Ontario Place....akin, in built form, to Toronto's answer to Montreal's Man-and-His-World (permanent exhibit succeeding the phenomenally successful Expo '67: http://www.worldsfairphotos.com/expo...and-his-world/)


ameriquefrancaise

If there was an inflection point (zenith) of Montreal's heyday, it was the summer of 1967.

Ontario Place looked crazy futuristic for its era, although I guess Canadians were used to seeing that sort of thing after Expo 67.

^ Looks like Export and I were on the same page!

I know those Expo 67 pavilions weren't built to last, but it's too bad that a few more buildings couldn't have been preserved. Expo 67 was before my time but I always wish I could have had a chance to explore the buildings to get a feel for what it would have been like.

Sorry guys, just realized I posted these in the wrong thread. Well they are kind of old skyline pics . It's funny how much the Cinesphere looked like Man-and-His-World before getting it's inner shell.

Side note, The Cinesphere was the first permanent IMAX theatre ever built and it featured a film called "Noth of Superior" when it opened.

Some old aerial photos (circa 1920's) of Halifax compared with Google 3D from 2016:

Here's another one. I guess the original was taken in the 80's:
