One of the most prolific of Quebec’s well known and widely respected photographers, Gabor Szilasi photographed the building of the Turcot Interchange. Here are some oldies from around 1967 when it was mostly completed.
In this one you can see clearly that the old canal bridge at de L’Eglise was in fact a swivel bridge. The legend has it that it was cut in half – half of the bridge still stands there – in order to allow for the building of the interchange, but this photo shows that wasn’t necessary.They ended up landfilling the south side and half the bridge remained in use for motor vehicles until about 5 years ago when the Monk Boulevard bridge was built. The building on the left side of the bridge is now the Muzo Hotel where your pet can stay while you are away.
There was a road going up to this location.
And here the Ville Marie has yet come to meet Turcot and Glen Yards appears to still be quite active.
