Montréal Telegraph


 Down to the water 

Business and stone 

And fires! 

Around Rue de l’Hôpital


As far back as 1874, hundreds of wires led to the roof of the elegant Montréal Telegraph building, the heart of a vast telegraphic system. The Chambers Telegraph building, nearby, was built in 1900 to house the telecommunication services of Canadian Pacific.
