A day in Montreal

The old train station in Montreal represents the flavour of the city as you see how the architects of old embraced the old world look in a new and grand way. I suppose I could have taken a picture of one of the many great restaurants as well for if there is a city in this country that has consistently great food it would be Montreal as well. I’ve been here many times in the past few years and I am never disappointed.

This trip was a bit of a whirlwind as we visited a number of sites in a short time for some very specific reasons. Included in that was our largest thrift store in the country. What a remarkable team we have working in the Montreal area. They are great people.

I found a few remarkable items too including this through back to another day. It has two doors that slide to the right and left to give it a finished appearance when not in use, but the slide out turntable and colour television are wonderful. If you are from the age of flat screens and i-pods you may not be able to truly appreciate what it is that this family furniture item brought to the home. This would have been someone’s pride and joy.20170614_095017
