Photographer's Note

Rue Saint-Paul (Saint Paul Street) is a street in the Old Montreal historic area of Montreal, Quebec.

The street was laid out by François Dollier de Casson, along the route of a path that had bordered a former fort. Saint Paul is Montreal's oldest street and for many years served as its main thoroughfare.

Paved in 1672, it was named after Paul de Chomedey de Maisonneuve, founder of Montreal, who built a home for himself on it in 1650.

Much of Saint Paul is still paved with cobblestones. Lined with restaurants and gift shops, it is very popular with tourists and visitors. It is also is home to the Bonsecours Market and Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel.
