  • It's Tempo season! - Spacing Montreal
    Laura 8 years ago Actually you won t find them in Ville St Laurent it s against their by laws We either have to shovel or hire someone here mare 8 years ago I must say if I lived in one of the houses in this picture I d buy a tempo too All the snow accumulates in front of the garagedoor and the driveway is so steep that you need really good traction not to drive into that same garage door when the snow melt cycles of the Montreal climate did their thing again I bet the architect hadn t thought about that If there was an architect Fagstein 8 years ago Downward sloping driveways are actually fairly common because it allows the basement floor to be below ground level They almost always include a drain in front of and behind the garage door to counteract the problem of pooling water Of course the drains get clogged easily with leaves and dirt or they re just frozen over in winter So you quickly find it impossible to open the garage door in the winter and have to use a pump in the spring It s a compromise with trade offs but all of these effects are well known by architects when they design these buildings Whether the homeowners know it or not is another story Also I m not aware of any case where anyone has suffered carbon monoxide poisoning from a Tempo tent They re not airtight and have an opening on the side literally big enough to drive a car through They re ugly but they re just for the winter when nobody s outside anyway Thomas Bernard Kenniff 8 years ago Speaking of quétaine I hope some inspired owners of these skeletal eyesores do the honourable thing of living up to the word by outlining their contraption in christmas lights like side of the highway homes Tempo season is officially decreed at least in Rosemont as october 15th to april 15th Stephen Shanahan 8 years ago You are lucky to be allowed to put them up Shoveling triples your chance of a heart attack if you are over 40 A six week study at the Beaumont Hospital in Detroit counted over 30 people dying while removing snow because of heart attacks The shelters are the most effective efficient environmentally sound no noise or air pollution no need for salt etc way of keeping your car and driveway free of ice and snow especially if it is sloped It also removes the need to idle the car to warm it up to get the windows cleared katia 8 years ago Bet you wish you had a tempo for this past winter Jason 7 years ago Hahaha I bet that you are jealous of who actually can install a Tempo in his driveway because probably you are living in West Island or other areas where Tempo shelters are not allowed So keep shoveling up and don t be

such positive notes and observations about my hometown Although I no longer live in Lachine I take great pride in bringing friends there to enjoy the lakeshore and more specifically the bike path And you re right those cafes and restaurants along St Joseph are a great find I must admit besides dining at the Toto s restaurant in one of your photos I haven t ventured downtown in a long while It was good to hear that there are some businesses opening and hopefully flourishing For those that have yet to experience Lachine be sure to bring your bikes or rollerblades park out by the Dorval border and start the trail there heading East Make sure you do the loop at Rene Levesque park Eva 7 years ago Loved your photos and your article I rent in neighbouring LaSalle and find Lachine 100 more interesting and attractive than LaSalle will ever be John 5 years ago What a fantastic article I lived in those new townhouses on Notre Dame from 2003 to 2005 and absolutely LOVED it So close to downtown when you wanted it living by the canal and lake was fabulous and so peaceful I am not in Quebec anymore but if I had to move back Lachine would be the place for me Lots of cute guys there too Cheers John Alex O 5 years ago I love the artical I m so happy people publih such nice things about my hometown I ve always been proud of beeing part of Lachine It makes me even happyer to hear nice comments like this about Lach Town By the way the pictures are really beautiful Gerry Rowe 4 years ago Great Site Lachine sure has a great history The St Joseph 1st to 10th aves go back to the Fur Trading days Notre Dame street in the 1950s and 1960s was the place to go shopping and met most of your needs Taverns were located on just about every second corner along Notre Dame Sreet as well Dominion Bridge Dominion Engineering Allis Chalmers Stelco and Wire Rope iIndustries were main Employors in the 40s 50s and 60s Unfortunatly they are all gone today Le Marquette along the waterfront was the place to be on Sundays musice was provided by local Bands most afternoons and evenings Thanks again Brian Millett 3 years ago What a Wonderful piece on a Great Small City I lived in Lachine the western area around 45th ave for 14 years went to both Grade School and most of High School until my Family moved West off the Island to Ile Perrot I have many many fond memories of Lachine as I met my Life Long best Friend in High School and we still remain Best of Friends 50 something years later Thanks again Ozmer 3 years ago What fond childhood memories of the 1960s your article allowed me to relive I attended Central Park Elementary School and lived on Notre Dame I might add although we were descandants of immigrant families Lachine was not as diverse as it is now The rich fabric of Canada lies on its resourceful hardworking multi diverse communities Teena 2 years ago A little known fact is that John Grant High School had the shortest YET the best boys basketball players in the 1965 1967 seasons The players were short but extremely well trained and we loved having winning teams Norm 2 years ago Still remember the thriving shops on Notre Dame St in the 40s and early 50s Enjoying movies at the Royal Alex and the Empress and watching the number 91 tram rambling to and from Montreal Lachine was then a busy place with many well paying jobs at the large industrial plants now all gone Left over 50 years ago but have fond memories of a wonderful community Manon 2 years ago I grew up in Lachine and I have fond memories of it We lived on 16th Avenue down from St Joseph Hospital near Victoria St where the train passed by I recall a man with infirmaties who wheeled his smallish trolly with his hands along the tracks trying to sell cartons of cigarettes Often we heard a man swing his cowbell advertising his presence to sell his umbrellas and Pete s french fry truck showed up very often selling his fries and hotdogs We lived right by the tennis court and accessed LaSalle Park through its path that took us to 10th Avenue and St Antoine on the way to Central Park School We would shop on Notre Dame at the Super Market Woolworth s and United we referred to as the nickle and dime shops long standing shops such as the bakery at 14th the fresh produce market at 18th the shoe repair at 14th whose winter skates were always a good buy and a great number of restaurants along the way Sunday mornings church bells rang everywhere so many churches for a relatively small town I remember the boat races on Sunday afternoons that could be heard from afar I later attended John Grant High We were surrounded by factories where women worked My mom has lived 65 of her 79 years in Lachine and will remain I am out west now and I do miss Lachine for its history its character and its beauty Bryan Prince 2 years ago I
