I love to walk in different parts of Montreal. The architecture changes depending on the year the area was developed as well as the clientele it was developed for. Even that evolved over the years as neighbourhoods deteriorate over time and more recently have been gentrified.

Marching UP

In many parts of the city you can see these three floor buildings with flats on each floor. Outdoor staircases lead up to the second floor. Some  sweep up dramatically, while others march up in a straight line.

  1. It's nice that they're being restored. So many times, an old building in my city neighborhood is just "scrapped." The land is worth more that the history.

  2. I prefer the slightly curving staircase with geometric patterns, but it would fun to dash up the straight steps.
