The presses of Montréal's major dailies

One side of the La Presse building, home to the 100-year old "largest French-language daily in North America," can be seen from the corner of Rue Saint-Jacques and boulevard Saint-Laurent; the presses themselves can be viewed from Rue Saint-Antoine.

Farther west are the offices of The Gazette, another large Montréal daily, founded in 1778 and published first in French, then in both languages and finally in English only.
