Photographer's Note

Life on Hochelaga-Maisonneuve was not always easy... The neighbourhood was one of the poorest in the city during the last 3 decades. Bathed by the afternoon light the colorful shop signs and 'personages' who inhabit the neighbourhood gain shape and glamour and the caracter of a mainly french-canadian neigbourhood can be fully appreciated. Do not expect though to find a cafe open on a sunday after 6pm on this neighbourhood, no Starbucks or Mac Donalds. Here the autenticity and the small business still prevails... On a spring sunday afternoon people go to have an ice-cream on Diary Queen, to walk on the Park Maisoneuve or to skate on the streets. The barbecues on the balconies or on the sidewalk will start soon as well as the bathing on the parks and public pools around the neighbourhood, but that is another story...
