Walking Montreal’s streets in 1987

As much as I like photos of Montreal from 100 years ago, it’s shots from more recent decades that really pique my interest. Luckily, Flickr has prompted a lot of people to dust off the boxes of slides, prints and negative they’ve kept in their closets and post their old photos online. That’s the case for Mike Gericke, a Montreal native who now lives in Ottawa. He’s uploaded a nice set of 37 photos that were taken on the streets of Montreal in the late 1980s. Here’s a few.

  1. Maybe 20 years ago only yet so many things looks so different. I’m only in my very early 30s and I remember some of this stuff. It’s time for me now to get old :)

  2. In total agreement with slutsky…that last picture really does rule.

  3. I’m pretty sure I’ve recently seen some new Zïlon graffiti around Mile End. Specifically, a face, on the street-level doors of St. Michael’s. Have you spotted any?

  4. The woman in the NDG pic, she was cute.
    I wonder if she’s still that good looking if so can I have her number? ~LOL~
