A Glimpse into Montreal Life in the Mid-1600s: Navigating the Past
Introduction:

Montreal, a city now bustling with modernity and cultural diversity, has a rich history that dates back centuries. In this journey back in time, we delve into the mid-1600s, a period when Montreal was in its infancy. Imagine a city surrounded by wilderness, a French colony on the verge of defining its identity. Life in Montreal during the mid-1600s was shaped by the challenges of the untamed landscape, the clash of cultures, and the resilient spirit of its early inhabitants.

The Landscape:

Picture Montreal in the mid-1600s as a settlement nestled along the banks of the St. Lawrence River. The landscape was dominated by dense forests, vast expanses of meadows, and the ever-present waterways that both connected and isolated the inhabitants. The natural surroundings were both a source of sustenance and a constant reminder of the harsh realities of survival.

The seasons played a crucial role in shaping daily life. Winters were long and unforgiving, with thick... Read MORE...

1650 - Montreal Status Report
The wheat crop this year was excellent especially at Montreal. The Iroquois had driven most of the Savages from Montreal and only 50 French remained. Most French were surprised that Montreal had not fallen to the Iroquois continuous assaults. Three Rivers has also been continually assaulted and a number of times was in fear of falling.

This island is about one hundred miles in circumference; and there the two branches unite which form our Great River.

1653 - Life in Montreal
The Jesuit vision of the Mountain of Montreal is a mission to convert the Natives and stop French exploration and free trading. This objective failed, and one hundred new settlers arrived this year, being the only significant expansion since its creation. The French population of New France is estimated at 2,000 persons. To test the weak and fumbling French leadership, two hundred Mohawk warriors made a surprise attack on the Hospital. The Hospital, across the little St. Pierre River, the Mountain of Montreal, is on high ground. The Mohawk retreated as the timing did not appear right. Thirty-two French mercenaries were killed and twenty two were captured by the Iroquois during the past three years. The Mission of the Mountain of Ville-Marie (Montreal)'s defenses consisted of a mere fifty men. The Iroquois themselves are being attacked by their neighbors to the east and south and offered peace to the French in November. A revolt by the upper nobility in France failed and they...

1666 Census - Montreal or Ville-Marie was scarcely more important than Three Rivers. The population of the whole district numbered only 625.
A fort built by Maisonneuve and Ailleboust at Pointe-a-Callieres; the house of the Sulpicians at the foot of the present Saint-Sulpice Street; the Hotel-Dieu on the other side of that street; the convent of the Congregation sisters facing the Hotel-Dieu; a few houses scattered along the road called 'de la Commune,' now Saint-Paul Street; and on the rising ground towards the Place d'Armes of later years a few more dwellings--these constituted the Montreal of primitive days. On the top of the hill called 'Coteau Saint-Louis' was erected an intrenched mill--'Moulin du Coteau'--which could be used as a redoubt to protect the inhabitants. The Sulpicians' house, the Hotel-Dieu, the convent of the Congregation, and the houses of the Place d'Armes and of 'la Commune' were connected with the fort by footpaths. Before 1672 there were no streets laid out. The only place of public worship was the Hotel-Dieu chapel, fifty feet in length by thirty in width. The superior of the Sulpicians was Abbe...

All told, nearly 1,300 Aboriginal people lived for three weeks in this small town of about 2,600 inhabitants. The ceremony took place at the same time as the annual fur fair. To keep things from getting out of hand, the authorities banned the sale of alcohol...

This peace, assuring France of domination in the west, meant that the Iroquois and the Aboriginal peoples of the Pays d'en haut would stop making war, and all could go freely after furs and move around undisturbed. The Iroquois also agreed to remain neutral in case of conflict between France and England. After the document was signed, the peace pipe was smoked.

A Glimpse into Montreal Life in the Mid-1700s: Where History and Heritage Intertwine
Introduction

Stepping back in time to the mid-1700s brings us to an era marked by colonial charm, bustling trade, and a cultural tapestry that laid the foundation for modern-day Montreal. Nestled along the banks of the St. Lawrence River, this vibrant city was a nexus of French and British influences, creating a unique blend that shaped its identity. Join me on a journey through the cobblestone streets and bustling markets of 18th-century Montreal, where the past comes alive with tales of fur traders, settlers, and the pulse of a growing metropolis.

The Colonial Tapestry

Montreal in the mid-1700s was a crucial hub in New France, a sprawling French colony that stretched across North America. The city's strategic location along the fur trade route made it a pivotal point for commerce, drawing fur traders, explorers, and settlers from both France and the indigenous nations. As a result, Montreal's streets echoed with a melange of languages, reflecting the diversity of its... Read MORE...

1750 - The inhabitants of Montreal...
J.C.B. in the Great Lakes wrote: The inhabitants of Montreal are much more lively, active, courageous, passionate, enterprising and warlike than those of Quebec; They pretend to be invincible, which has not always kept them from being surprised by the Iroquois. However, they are good warriors, used to the ways of the Natives and they are hard to beat. They are good voyagers, who manage their canoe well, always singing, and they are also good hunters. They are not very rich, because they spend all that they gained in the past year or more, during the yearly trading trips they undertake with the merchants to visit the Natives in the northern regions.

A Stroll Down Memory Lane: Life in Montreal in the Mid-1800s
Introduction:

Montreal, in the mid-1800s, was a city on the cusp of change. The echoes of its colonial past were still resonating through the cobblestone streets, yet the seeds of modernization were beginning to sprout. As we take a leisurely stroll through the annals of time, let's explore what life was like in this vibrant and evolving metropolis during an era that laid the foundation for the diverse and dynamic city we know today.

The Melting Pot of Cultures:

In the mid-1800s, Montreal was a melting pot of cultures, a testament to its colonial history. The city's streets echoed with a polyphony of languages - French, English, and a myriad of others, reflecting the diverse origins of its inhabitants. French influence was deeply ingrained, with a significant population of French Canadians, but English-speaking communities were also growing, contributing to the unique linguistic tapestry of the city.

Economic Landscape:

Montreal was a bustling economic hub, driven by... Read MORE...

Montreal, Monday, June 7.
We were yesterday visited with a most destructive conflagration, which has laid in ashes a considerable number of buildings in the business part of our city. It commenced at 6 o'clock A.M., at the corner of St. Peter and Lemoyne streets, in the carpenter shop of J.

The hotel was a five story structure, and it was with extreme difficulty that the firemen were able to drag their hose up the stairs to the fourth story, where the flames first raged. Meanwhile the servants of the hotel on the upper floor, blinded by smoke and bewildered with terror, rushed frantically for the stairs, but in may instances were unable to find them, and , driven back by the flames, betook themselves to the roof or windows. The Witness says:

The fire was first discovered at one o'clock A. M., skipping from the rear of the laundry and forcing itself towards the front of the building where several servants slept in the upper attic.

Friday morning, at 5:30 o'clock, as the Portland express on the Grand Trunk Railway was passing the 27th mile post, near Soixante, the three last cars, a Pullman and two others, left the track from spreading of the rails, broke the coupling and rolled down the embankment over 30 feet high. Thirty-two persons more or less injured were brought to Montreal by the forward part of the train. The others were left at St. Hyacinthe and Beloeil. Several are frightfully hurt. Most of the passengers were Americans.

1882-84 - Montreal / Mount Royal
THERE is no more beau-tiful city on the continent of America than the commercial metropolis of the Dominion of Canada. The geographical features of the place at once suggest a city. Ocean-going steamers can navigate the river St. Lawrence no farther inland, but here, where insuperable difficulties stop navigation, nature has made it possible for human skill to produce a magnificent harbour. Lying between the river and Mount Royal, rarely has it been the good fortune of any city to have so fine a background. The flat part, situated at the base by the river side, makes it easy for business; the sloping sides of the mountain are intended, perhaps, to meet the modern idea that prosperity shall build in the west end, and abundance in some overlooking heights. That which was natural happened; the city has extended westward and along the mountain side — that is to say, wealth used its undoubted right to erect its dwelling-places up the river where the water is clear, and up the mountain...

1884 - A US patent for peanut butter was awarded to Marcellus Gilmore Edson of Montreal, Quebec in 1884,
who had decided to apply for a US patent instead of a British one (the British patent office refused most patents from “colonials” in the 19th Century). Had there been a Canadian patent office in those days, he probably would have gone there first.

LARGE FIRE IN MONTREAL
DAMAGE TO BUILDINGS AMOUNTING TO NEARLY $200.000.
MONTREAL, Quebec, March 10 - The largest fire in Montreal for a long time occurred this afternoon, and destroyed the business places of the following firms:

Cassidy & Co.; P. M. Galarneau's store; Compagnie Central de New-York; Mongenais; Bowen & Co., wholesale dealers in liquors and groceries; E. Racine & Co., wholesale dry goods

During the process of the fire nine firemen at work on a Skinner ladder having caught fire when the guy rope snapped, the ladder falling to one side, but happily falling against a telegraph pole. This stopped the fall and saved the lives of the firemen. Fred Haynes, of No. 3 Station, is missing. He was working in the cellar when last seen.

1898 - A “ SNAP-SHOT ” AT OLD MONTREAL RASCO'S HOTEL
"And then go to my inn, and dine." (Shakespeare)

In former lines the most fashionable hotel in the city was Rasco's. It still stands at the east end of St. Paul Street opposite Bonsecours Market, and was built on, or near, the site of the ancient palace of Mr. de Vaudreuil, Governor of Canada under the French régime. It contained two extensive suites of rooms, united by corridors at the eastern extremity. The hotel cost in construction £9,840, and the furnishing £3,300. It is said to have been opened May 1st 1836. The enterprising proprietor was formerly employed in the building next to the theatre, known by the name of the “ British American Hotel,” which was destroyed by fire on 24th April 1833. The building was subsequently the property of the heirs of the late Hon. C. S. Rodier. Rasco was a little, fat, lively man, and after having made a considerable fortune, he retired to Italy, his native country, where he died. Looking at it to-day no one would realize its fallen...

1899 - Montreal
Montreal, the largest city of the province of Quebec, is finely situated. It is built on an island in the St. Lawrence, thirty miles long by seven miles wide ; and is the point at which ocean navigation ceases, and river and lake navigation begins. The large ocean steamers puff their way up the St. Lawrence River a thousand miles to unload their goods at Montreal ; while numerous small sailing vessels and steamers, on their way down the great river, stop at Montreal. It is not surprising then that Montreal, owing to its fine natural position, should have become the largest city of all British America .

A beautiful view of Montreal is obtained by descend ing the St. Lawrence in a steamboat. There are numer ous rapids above the city which steamboats are obliged to “ shoot.” This is dangerous work . White, foaming waves strike the bows, and whirl away to the stern. The vessel swerves sharply from the dangerous rocks. The thunder of the rapids mingles with the laughter and glee of...

1902 - A Massachusetts Man's Big Luck - Gate Tender on a Railroad to Get a Large Slice.
The Times Special Service.
WORCESTER, Mass., Saturday, June 7. - Family records expected daily from the parish priest at Lanoraie in Quebec are expected to establish the claim of Joseph A. Demars, a gate tender of the Boston & Albany Railroad to a share of the $8,000,000 which has been in possession of the city authorities of Cleveland, O., since 1864.

Mr. and Mrs. Demars, in case they are able to prove their claim, will have to share the fortune with the families of Mrs. Loiuse Caisse, Alfred Caisee, Henry Caisse and three sisters, and Mrs. Frank Belville.

Fiction never furnishes a stranger romance than that of the Caisse millions and the efforts of the Caisse family to prove their kinship to the mysterious real estate man who died in Cleveland nearly forty years ago.

Men and women have grown old in hope of eventually becoming wealthy, families have increased and multiplied until now, should the fortune be divided, a liberal estimate would give those having claims only... Read MORE...

1904 - Is the City Water Safe?
The Montreal aldermen who wish to keep the result of any analysis of the city water secret, show more acquaintance with than faith in the water. Just what good it will do the tax-payers to pay for an analysis of their drinking water, if they are not to be told how it comes out, is not clear. But then neither is the water clear as a rule. Still something may be learned by watching the subsequent habits of the aldermen who are permitted to see the secret report. If they shun water as a beverage after having perused this document, it will be just as well for their constituents to take the hint - and not the water.

CREW ASLEEP ON VESSEL WHEN FIRST EXPLOSION OCCURS - FLYING TIMBERS KILL SEVERAL IN SUCCEEDING DETONATIONS.

Montreal, June 17. - (UP) - A series of explosions on the British Oil tanker Cymbeline today killed upwards of 21 men and caused property damage of more than a million dollars.

For several hours after the explosions fires burned hot at the Canadian Vickers dock, where the Cymbeline had been tied up for repairs. Rescue attempts seemed futile and at mid-morning the casualties were announced as:

Known dead 21.
Injured 63.

The second explosion brought death to Fireman PAUL HENRICHON. Working on the side of the ship, he was flung against the railing and burned to death before the eyes of his comrades, unable to reach him. At the same time, Lieut.
