Stairways by susanvg

As Montreal as outdoor staircases. This is so typical here, despite our snowy winters. I've written before about why they exist. The staircase to the third floor is indoors. I don't envy those who have to navigate these daily with packages, babies and other items in their arms. They are quite steep and despite anyone's best efforts, snow and ice accumulate. But such are the challenges of our climate and our city!


  1. You wouldn't need a gym membership!

  2. Very interesting facts in your previous post. You have really closed in on this shot. It has so much in it but does not look clutter - just so very unique and it really catches your eye. You framed it well.

  3. A great shot that really captures Montreal. I can't imagine using those stairs in the dead of winter...
