A Triplex on Rue Saint-Urbain, Montréal
Started a cold water rental units on the end of 19th century, the houses on this part on the street are from about 1900-1920. Interestingly this type of housing was not build in Toronto, but I have seen it in Boston and bit in NYC. These Triplexes (usually 3 separate units), with wrought iron staircases, railings and balconies are very typical in this city. The 3 story height is very much the right scale to encourage a street connection. This type of housing, rather then 50 floor apartment building, is assuring a vibrant urban streetlife, interaction with neighbours and small local stores. The ‘Depanneur’ convenience stores, another Montreal institution, is surviving, because of this type of housing. The Toronto ‘Corner Store’ is quickly disappearing as the glass towers mushroom in my city.
On this photo I’ve captured one of the strangest current trends. The ‘Man Hair Bun’ is one of the most retarded hair couture development, (in my not so humble opinion) since, well, the Women Hair Bun….;-)
