The Trinity Anglican Church, located at St. Denis St. and Viger Ave and built in 1865, will be demolished this week. It's been vacant for a long time. A "superhospital" will be built in that location. The church was rechristened Eglise St. Sauveur.
Another part of history being wiped out in Montreal. Pretty sad stuff but not unexpected.
Here's an article at The Gazette (it seems the Gazette removed the article) about this.
I took these two 35mm B&W photos back in 2007. I was meeting a friend and we were going to Old Montreal and I just happened to take these snapshots. I realized that the church was condemned as it was boarded up and looked worse for wear.
Here are some photos of the Trinity Church / Eglise St Sauveur taken on Thursday Nov 25. They already started destroying the vicarage/presbytery as you can see in photos no 4 and 5. These photos will give you general idea of what will be demolished. The beautiful house and apartments next to it (the last 5 photos) will also be destroyed. Those are really cool Montreal-style dwellings. Click on the photos to see details.
