Photography exhibition on McGill College Avenue
At a time when we’re increasingly concerned with the source of our food, this exhibition reminds us that in the past, access to local agricultural products was an ordinary part of city life. Locally grown food has long been part of the urban experience. From backyard vegetable patches to community gardens to public markets, products of the earth are part of city-dwellers’ daily reality and underpin human relationships.
Discover 24 large-format photographs from the Museum’s Photography collection, taken mainly in and around Montreal between 1860 and 1990. Visit McGill College Avenue, between de Maisonneuve Boulevard and President Kennedy Avenue.
