If you were around before the 1970s, you might still remember the Mountain Street viaduct, which spanned the Canadian National tracks between St. Jacques and Notre Dame. These photos, taken around 1930 and scanned from the city archives by Coolopolis’ Kristian Gravenor, show a particularly lively and substantial part of the city. It’s now unrecognizable, the victim of highway construction, road widening and urban renewal. Nothing you see here remains today.
I still don’t know the exact year of the viaduct’s demolition. Can anyone help me out?
