Old Montréal
The Lighting Plan
 
Rue Saint-Paul

Rue Saint-Paul Ouest, at Rue Saint-François-Xavier

Here the line of vertical lights emphasizes the winding, narrow feel of Montréal's oldest street.

As you approach the end of each segment, the buildings that have drawn your gaze become luminous markers inviting you
on to the next scene...
