    West Island yesteryear pics- Updated !

    so I've been getting a ton of requests for some pictures I had of the WI back in the 60s. Rather then bumping up an old thread I decided to start a new one. I finally found the pics on an old HD that required time in the freezer to boot up.

    40 being built at St-Charles Road

    40 being built at St-Johns Road


    Fairview Shopping Center circa mid to late 60s. Still one floor, 2nd floor and major renos were done in the late 80s


    Highway 40 interchange at St-Johns road. To the left is Fairviews parking lot, right is the former I believe Purina factory. You can see there is NOTHING on Brunswick and LaBrosse


    Sources Road looking south boud. To the left we see Sources Shopping Center and to the right that house was standing up until about 13 years ago.


    40 Westbound at Morgan


    40/Cote de Liesse


    Decarie Expressway under construction

    Back then Montreal was perfect for the amount of population it had. As MTV pointed out, the roads were so much better because there were so many less cars.

    Great pics! Where are these sourced from?

    C'est surprenant la vision qu'ils ont eu quand meme. Quand tu check sa, la pluspart des villes sont batit en village avec des petites route. Déja sur les photos les routes sont large et y'a déja des voie de service....

    Really cool post. I love these old pics

    I'd like to see pics from street level once development started happening in the late 70s/80s of St-Charles and St-Jeans
