St. Anne's Ward, or the Transformation of an Irish Montreal Neighbourhood: 1792-1970

This collection of some 30 images gives an overview of how Montreal's St. Anne's ward changed over time. From a small working-class suburb in the 18th century, it grew to become the centre of Canada's Industrial Revolution a hundred years later. Closely associated with Montreal's Irish community, St. Anne's ward was a major factor in giving the community's members a sense of identity.

Profile:

  • Iconography related to major events (epidemics, floods, etc.)
  • Photographs and maps showing how Montreal and St. Anne's ward in particular have changed over time
  • Photographs illustrating living conditions of working class (housing, household items, factories, etc.)
