St. Henri Station

From the first time that Sheryl had me stop at the 'Dollar Store' on Notre Dame, I was transfixed by the St. Henri area. I had never noticed before, in all my drives past that area, how clearly the old train station layout stood out. This was clearly an historic corner, the junction of Montreal's first and second railways: The Montreal and Lachine Railway and the Grand Trunk Railway.

So, on this day, I set off with Alex in the early afternoon for a photo-taking outing. I wanted to document, for myself, the area before development erased everything.
