Montreal is the most populous municipality in the Canadian province of Quebec and the second-most populous municipality in Canada.

The city is centred on the Island of Montreal, which got its name from the same origin as the city, and a few much smaller peripheral islands, the largest of which is Île Bizard. It has a distinct four-season continental climate with warm to hot summers and cold, snowy winters.

Montreal is the second largest primarily French-speaking city in the developed world, after Paris. It is situated 196 km (122 mi) east of the national capital Ottawa, and 258 km (160 mi) south-west of the provincial capital Quebec City.

Montreal is considered one of the most liveable cities in the world, and the best city in the world to be a university student in the QS World University Rankings.

Take a look at these fascinating photos to see what street scenes of Montreal looked like in the 1950s.
