Expo 67 Billboards

The first time I saw one of these roadside billboards, put out by french specialty channel Historia, my eyes nearly popped out of my head!

Expo's anniversary is currently being honored with a series of billboards in the Montreal area. These striking ads feature classic Expo 67 graphics that capture the spirit of the event and its era.

How I would love to wallpaper my place with one of these!

I totally agree. A kaleidoscope mural would be awesome!

Are these billboards promoting a special show (or series of shows) on Historia? Is there some reason why they're up? Or is it just some sort of general branding campaign for the station?

Historia did a great 1 hour documentary (in french) to commemorate Expo. It was broadcast this spring.

I believe these posters are simply to pay tribute to Expo as a part of our history.

I reminds me of Beau Dommage's song "Blues de la Métropole":

"En 67 tout était beau
C'était l'année d'l'amour, c'était l'année d'l'Expo Chacun son beau passeport avec une belle photo J'avais des fleurs d'ins'cheveux, fallait-tu êt'niaiseux?"

I do hope you knew this :)
