Montreal in the 1940s is back again this week because I am just so in love with these photographs and want to share as much of them as possible with the world. I think I’ll probably keep the rest for later on in the year but for now I wanted to share the ones I’ve complied as the ‘dam and bridge’ ones. I think the family must have lived right beside this bridge or near the dam because they have a lot of photos taken there and most of them you can tell by the changing outfits that they were taken at various times and not just from one day. It’s hard to tell as well if the dam actually flows into the same stream the bridge is going over. It’s really a mystery and I feel like I’ve actually seen this bridge before which makes me even more curious. I absolutely love these photographs and wish I knew more about this family. When I first went through them I thought the photos probably covered years of this families life but now I’ve changed my opinion and decided they were probably wealthy and actually took photos more often than most people did in the 1940’s because it’s mostly photos of the younger 20ish looking boys and girls posing in front of various things and being silly or fashionable. Let me know what you think in the comments!
