Wow! Just saw a photograph of the American Pavilion now called the Montreal Biosphere at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Biosphere_montreal.JPG. Cool!

Expo 67?? That is an old truck or someone with a good memory. Love it!

Very nice!

RedPat has it right, an old tuck it has to be. I was a teenager living in Kingston in '67, so I got that Expo plus the '86 affair. Nice memories.

At first glance, I wondered if your title really referred to 1967 - seems it does, very cool sight!

It's not often in Canada that we see trailers with murals on them painted on them. Excellent find on your part.

this is neat. I like the way it goes from east to west.

Fabulous- have heard about Expo '67 but was before my time.

Cool, there are so many things to see in the mural!
I love the lighthouse, I can almost listen to the sound of the seagulls! ;-)

Wow, what an eye grabber. Looks new despite the references to the 67 Expo. Kind of a meditative feel to this composition. Thanks for contributing to Monday Mural.

This is terrific. I don't remember anything about the 67 Expo. I was in Montreal for a meeting in the early 70s, though, if that counts toward anything! Great mural - especially the eye and the train.
