Nice to see you blogging once again - it's been too long! As a Canadian born in 1960, your blog brings back warm memories of a cherished era. Although I did not see Expo '67 specifically, my family and I visited there the next year when it had become Man and His World. Still, I love the way Expo encapsulates much of the style and fun I associate with my 60's childhood as a whole. Welcome back to the blogosphere, Jason, and please keep posting whenever you can. Cheers!

Great to have you back... Been way too long!!!!
As a young 51 year old, I was but 5 during Expo but remember some of it...even remember parking at the Victoria Parking lot by the cute animal signs... My fav was the Hypo! Lol very clever to have used animals that kids could remember rather than boring letters or numbers for the place Dad parked the car.
Anyway, thanks for blogging again.

AARRGGHHH! I loved Expo 67. I was nine years old when it opened and we would go every weekend. I still have fond memories of all the pavilions and the diversity of cultures. You could get anywhere in the park via elevated tram.

A great part was La Ronde on one of the other islands. It was the amusement park, like a mini Disneyland. We would take the double-decker bus from downtown, over the Jacques Cartier bridge. That in itself was scary, sitting on the second floor of the bus, driving up the curving on-ramp.

I lived in expo! My father was moshe safdies construction architect for habitat and we spent the summer in an apartment! I miss montreal a lot as we were one of the quiet revolution victims and emigrated in 72 to the most boring place you could imagine-the isle of man!
