I don’t mean to order you around, but these murals are pretty neat and you should probably look at them.
The Fodor’s Guide to Montreal and I went on a tour of some awesome-as-hell murals on St. Laurent Boulevard (or “The Main,” as it is affectionately called) in Montreal over the summer. Here’s what we saw on our tour.
Come on, book. It’s time to see some dang murals!
This is an excellent mural. This tour was off to a good start, I’d say.
This particular mural featured some interesting characters.
In particular this guy. Love this guy.
Let’s get a closer look.
Here are some large men playing cards in a way I have not seen before. I do not think this how you play cards? Is this how you play cards? Do you just show your friend your cards, while holding a water bottle?? What game is this???
This wasn’t a mural–but it was definitely my favorite door in Montreal.
Here is a regal crow, and a fine mural, as well.
What’s that, a shell? Is that seashell? With flowers coming out of it? Held up by a half skeleton half regular person? Man, this is way too cool for me.
This is an example of a lost paradise: mural edition.
These mural monsters look like ice cream (because they are ice cream). This mural is titled “The Seven Deadly Sins.”
Presenting: the best wall I’ve ever seen. I personally like to think that the story behind this mural is that this chicken was once the captain of that ship, but that the crew committed a mutiny and sent him away. I am assuming I’m wrong, because I am usually wrong about most things.
The book needed a rest. I sat it on this bench and took pictures of it like an idiot for several minutes, unaware that we were resting for no reason, and that the tour was, in fact, over.
