The greystone buildings standing in Montreal today are essential tools for understanding the city. A deep study of their material history from the late seventeenth century to the early twentieth century demonstrates how geology, topography, politics, ethnicity, and culture, as well as changes in economy and technology, have shaped the city through the centuries. Conceived as a photographic mission conducted by Phyllis Lambert and Richard Pare through Montréal neighbourhoods in 1973 and 1974, the photographic series of greystone reveals the relationship between city growth, building type, and individuals.
