Saturday Photo: Woodside Cottage on a Busy Street
There's a plaque in front, saying that it was built in 1867-68 by a pioneer in the neighborhood David Edward who was the first mayor of Outremont after it was incorporated in 1875. The house now sit on a busy thoroughfare, which still follows a curving track made by Native Canadians who took it around Mount Royal.
This time of year the trees surrounding the house are turning colour, and the flower beds are full of autumnal asters. But it hasn't turn so cold that the fountain has been turned off, so the splash of water competes with the traffic noises.
