  • The Cathedral-Basilica of Mary, Queen of the World picture was taken from a very bad angle, looking south on Metcalf street. Only a part of the building can be seen.

    This building is basically a half scale replica of Place St-Pierre of Rome and is probably one of the most beautiful Cathedral in Canada… Sainte-Anne de Beaupré Basilica near Quebec city worth the look too.

    Lot of picture from Montreal are missing in this collection: Subway stations (each one is a piece of art from different artist), Place Ville-Marie, Oratoire St-Joseph, Mount Royal, Old port, Jacques-Cartier and Victoria Bridges, Notre-Dame island, Expo67, Gilles Villeneuve circuit, Habitats 67, nearest picture of the Olympic stadium, etc.
