Mid-century fashion, vintage pop culture and retro cool... from Expo 67 and beyond.

"Montreal in the 60's"



Like The Memories of Angels, this fab little film by Jimmy Deschênes uses vintage NFB footage to capture the effervescence of Montreal in the 1960's.

My favorite part is the Expo 67 Monorail ride at the end of the film... Enjoy!

The video was nice. It reminded me of "Our street was paved with gold." I re-viewed it, and enjoyed it very much. Thanks! Snowball

beautiful! the time-lapse of the monorail at Expo at the end is super cool. It almost seems like a contemporary computer-generated fly-through

Lots more historical Montreal stock footage from the NFB can be found at this site:

To get at the higher-res versions you'll need to create an account, login, and "order" selected clips. It costs nothing, but you have to put up with the distracting watermarks and time codes.

It's Saint-Catherine Street.

The Pointe-à-Callière museum has a temporary exhibition on now about the history of the Montreal artery:
