Format: Hardcover
The book turned out to be more pictures than narrative. That in itself isn't a problem, but we were expecting a little more background material on Montreal's history. But it has excellent photos and is worth buying for that alone.

Attracting, at first... July 7 2006
By J. Theberge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A fascinating juxtaposition of photography, but it appears that Alan Hustak forgot to walk and to take time in a large area of the city: the book concentrates a lot on the Western area of the Montréal where the English culture is more at ease, but goes with timidity on the Eastern side of the St-Laurent street. For instance, the book mentions and shows the two English based university, and Hustak rewards their multicultural aspect, but both francophone universities, UQAM and Université de Montréal, are entirely forgotten.

Although the writer is said to be living in Montréal since 1967, it looks like he had some difficulties meeting with the French culture. The author even tends to diminish the importance and the huge contribution of this culture in the city.

On another aspect, a few camera angles of the contemporary photos are sometime disappointing in relation to the original.
