In nineteenth-century Canada, the Square Mile was an elite residential district in Montreal that represented a dramatic new concentration of wealth. Montreal's Square Mile chronicles the history of the Square Mile, including the diverse and far-reaching sources of its making and its twentieth-century transformations.


Bringing together the work of leading scholars from a wide range of fields of historical investigation, this collection tells the story of the Square Mile from its origins to its decline. Spanning the interconnected worlds of family and home life, business and high politics, architecture and urban redevelopment, this interdisciplinary and richly illustrated volume presents a new account of the history of the Square Mile and an investigation of its impact beyond the immediate urban environment.
