Read: "Montreal" written by Helga Loverseed.

Read: Montreal written by Helga Loverseed, 1996, 1896339603.

Eh, this book was okay; I reserved it on a whim. One of those paperback photo books aimed at tourists. Slightly smaller than a 8.5" by 11" piece of paper with plenty of color photos. The book is sectioned to cover the different areas of the city with brief, descriptive essays.

Judging by cars, clothes, and hairstyles the photos were taken over a wide range of time. The aerial views are pretty nice and some of the photos overlap, but from different angles. It's neat to look at those shots and make comparisons. I do wonder how photos were chosen because several street level shots are of the same dang buildings.

I was hoping for a longer and larger book with photographs to match. I still hope to visit there again on vacation. There are loads of summer activities for families and kids.
