In this book, Pauline Desjardins, an anthropologist specializing in industrial heritage, invites us to discover the ongoing evolution of the ancient haven that is the Old Port of Montreal. Through simple, flawing writing and lots of spectacular images, ancient port infrastructure come alive, the voices of longshoremen, sailors and merchants are heard again, and boats of then and now cross paths. The book illustrates how much the Old Port’s current activities are rooted in a rich heritage. Published in 2007, this 200 pages book is available in English and French.
