2160 rue Bordeaux

By in montreal

Piece of gyproc wall I photographed. It had been tossed out after renovations. Sorry I didn’t take a shot of the building. Maybe I’ll go back and get that.
2160 Bordeaux
As i was doing this, a couple of guys walked by muttering words that included “kodak” and “malade” (crazy). I guess that’s accurate.

Anyhow, here’s the translation of what’s written there:
March 4, 2001
A little history about this house!
The house was bought in 1981 by Andre Giroux for $17,500.00
Formerly a quadruplex, 2160, 2162, 215 and […] de Bordeaux were partitioned in two.
Marc Lepine, who killed 14 students at the Ecole Polytechnique, lived on the other side of the street, 2175.
The trees along the street were planted in 1982 right before a municipal election, for Mayor Jean Drapeau, who won the election.

    Really neat, but weird, find… I don’t think you’re crazy for taking that photo.
