Rare Vintage 8mm Film: A Trip to Montreal, 1939~**jmv123
This home movie was shot by George Devlin, an American visiting Canada on vacation in 1939. Believed to be primarily shot in Montreal, let me know in the comments if you recognize any of the scenery! The first few frames may actually be Quebec City, as an ad for "A.E. Marois Limited Boots and Shoes" on the side of the building suggests it was near the Saint-Roch district. The song "Les Américains" about visitors to Canada during prohibition is sung by Quebec folk singer Mary Rose-Anna Travers who was known as Madame Bolduc or La Bolduc. Unfortunately, this audio produces ads on the video, but I really don't want to change the music, so that will have to suffice. This film was transferred to HD by Cineworks in Vancouver in March 2013.
