Montreal from Street Railway Power House Chimney

Manufacturing activity in the city gave birth to what is called an industrial landscape. Companies tended to set up their factories close to the port or to railway tracks. The Grand Trunk Railway workshops, factories producing machinery and other iron and steel products, spinning mills and the Redpath sugar refinery were all located here; their employees lived nearby.
