Temporary exhibition

16 June 2016 — 6 November 2016

Montreal Mansions, 1974

Photographs by Charles Gurd

In the 1920s and ′30s, the who’s who of Montreal, such as the Redpaths, the Molsons and the Ogilvies, lived in sumptuous Edwardian mansions. A few decades later, the final generations of these families still living in the grand houses were preparing to move out and move on.

In 1974, Montreal architect Charles Gurd met with many of these individuals to photograph the interiors of their magnificent homes. This exhibition features some 40 stunning black and white prints that eloquently portray a bygone way of life.

Not to be missed!
