Outremont Park

The town of Outremont, on the slopes of Mount Royal, is now in the heart of greater Montreal, but was considered to be a suburb in 1910. The middle classes, especially, preferred the suburbs. With a streetcar system, outlying areas could attract people looking for peace and quiet, away from the hubbub of the city.
