Iconic Montreal signs find a home at Concordia

Rare collection preserves the city's heritage
December 5, 2013

The hallways and stairwells of Concordia's Communication Studies and Journalism (CJ) Building on the Loyola Campus are home to a collection of fascinating Montreal signage.

As more and more historical façades disappear behind new developments, the Montreal Signs Project serves as a colourful reminder of the city's cultural and commercial heritage. In this video, Communication Studies professor Matt Soar, who launched the project in collaboration with Archivist Emerita Nancy Marrelli, gives us a tour of the collection. He explains how each of the donated or rescued signs tells its own unique story.
