Circuit #1 - Around Victoria Square: Paper Hill (1890–1930)
A series of three architectural walking tours around Victoria Square presented by Heritage Montreal

Get a sense of the industrial past of the area around Victoria Square as you walk through Paper Hill, where printers and publishers established themselves at the turn of the 20th century. Focusing on such key buildings as the Unity and the Southam, this walk explores a type of commercial architecture characterized by ? among other things ? the use of new materials like reinforced concrete which opened up a range of new structural possibilities.
