Montreal at Work

A new outdoor exhibition on McGill College Avenue Until October 14

The 14th open-air exhibition on McGill College Avenue presented by BMO Bank of Montreal in conjunction with Astral, will have passers-by stepping into the workplaces of Montrealers from 1900 to the 1940s. The photographs from the McCord Museum collection invite viewers to take a trip back in time to discover the places and atmosphere in which men and women plied their trades. This incursion into the working world takes viewers in to the daily lives of Montrealers in the first half of the 20th century, as they toiled in factories, workshops, hospitals and offices. In addition to bringing the workforce of yesteryear to life, the photos recall the old-fashioned charm of the architecture, furniture, tools and clothing of thetime.

This 24-part look at the workplaces of the past shows that although some of the occupations pictured still exist, working conditions have changed radically. From William Notman’s famous photography studio to nurses at Hôtel-Dieu hospital, by the way of the busy workrooms at the Berliner Gramophone Company, these images show the concentration of Montreal’s economic activity in the area now known as the Ville-Marie borough.
