Index: Vintage Postcards Of Communities On The Island Of Montreal

Montreal is the name of both a city and an island. Traditionally, Montreal Island included  the city of Montreal proper,  and various incorporated or un-incorporated communities. Many of these communities eventually became towns in their own right, but in the last decade many lost their independent status and became boroughs of the Greater City of Montreal. More recently, there as been a de-merging movement.

For this reason I have divided my postcards into two indexes. The first contains  places in the historical City Of Montreal , while this index includes all other communities on the Island.
