PEEL STREET MONTREAL

Peel Street is a major north-south street located in downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The Street links Pine Avenue, near Mount Royal, in the north and Smith Street, in the Southwest borough, in the south. The street's southern end is in the Peel Basin on the Lachine Canal. The street runs through Montreal's shopping district.

McGill University buildings line much of its uppermost section. Further south, Peel is home to McGill's Martlet House, the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association, Canada's oldest athletics association, and the Consulate General of Pakistan. The street borders the western side of Place du Canada and the adjacent Dorchester Square, the Chateau Champlain, Windsor Station and the Dow Planetarium.

The Peel Metro station is named for the street.

Opened in 1845, Peel Street was named after Sir Robert Peel, the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Until 1959 Peel was known as Colborne Street south of Notre-Dame Street, and up until 1968, the street was known as Windsor Street near René-Lévesque Boulevard.

PEEL STREET MONTREAL

RUE PEEL MONTRÉAL

La rue Peel est une rue commerciale d'axe nord-sud située au centre-ville de Montréal dans l'arrondissement Ville-Marie. Elle relie le flanc sud du mont Royal à l'arrondissement Sud-Ouest, un quartier traditionnellement industriel. Cette rue, située en plein centre-ville, est parsemée de commerces et de tours de bureaux.

Ouverte en 1845, la rue tient son nom de Sir Robert Peel, un homme politique anglais. Jusqu'en 1968, la rue s'appelait Windsor, près du boulevard René-Lévesque et jusqu'en 1959, elle s'appelait Colborne, au sud de la rue Notre-Dame.

Je n'arrive pas à imaginer dans cette rue de bureaux, comment il peut y avoir des voitures garées le lond du trottoir ! En plus la qualité de tes photos, montyre bien l'étroitesse relative des rues au vu de la taille des immeubles ! Un quartier assez inhumain...de toute façon je n'aime pas du tout ces concentrations verticales horribles, pour y loger ceusses ,qui y travaillent...un manque d'humanisme..;dès que l'argent afflue ! Encore une fois très belles photos, même si les batiments sont "horribile visu" !!! ;=)

The photo of these tall buildings made me think of towers of stone and that got me thinking about Stonehenge and other megalithic structures and how though out time humans have raise up these giant monuments toward the sky.
