This is the Colonne Nelson in Old Montreal, near Place Jacques-Cartier. It is dedicated to Admiral Horatio Nelson who fought and died during the War of the Third coalition (1803-1806).
I just published a new article about one of Montreal’s most interesting neighborhoods: Little Burgundy on Untapped Cities. Read it here.
Little Burgundy has a rich past, playing an important part in Montreal’s renowned jazz scene. After years of desolation, the area has been going through quite the revival in the last few years.
I thought I’d share some more pictures of the neighborhood that I didn’t put in with the article.
