Griffintown Walking Tour
I thought I would share this post from G. Scott Macleod as he just finished creating the Griffin Town walking tour production. The Griffintown walking tour is in preparation for St Patrick’s Day and Montreal 375th anniversary.
Enjoy the 21 videos that tell the stories of Griffintown. Here’s the link to the website: www.griffintowntour.com
Below is a small sample of the artwork.

21 short films by G. Scott MacLeod
In these 21 short films, Irish Historian Dr. Matthew Barlow recounts the fascinating social history of Griffintown, a former industrial neighborhood just south of downtown Montreal. With only a handful of original civic, residential and industrial sites remaining, this once thriving community of predominantly working class Irish and French Canadians has all but disappeared. New constructions and gentrification are well underway and have brought a condo boom, but this community endures in memory, via recent books, films and community art projects and through Barlow’s stories.
