Rue Saint-Denis in the Rain

July 14, 2011

Couple of very rapid sketches grabbed while waiting out a sudden downpour. (Colored when I got home – a rare cheat!) This happens to be in the Latin Quarter on St. Denis, but really these cupolas are typical of the walk up buildings all over central Montreal.

Every house, no matter how mundane – depanneur (corner store), run down apartment, little boutique – they all have their own decorative touch. It might be these peaked cupolas or a small minaret, a stone carving, or an extravagant balcony. The streets are full of feisty little row houses. Nobody wants to be boring in Montreal!
