A summer afternoon on the mountain.

By car or on foot, people wander along the paths of Mount Royal, designed a few years earlier by the celebrated American Frederick Law Olmsted. Some carry picnic baskets so that they can “dine out.” Others enjoy a magnificent view of the city after riding up to the summit aboard the funicular. All of these people wore the requisite clothing and accessories: young women kept their peachy complexions under sun umbrellas, while young boys from good families wore their sailor suits with great pride.
