The part of the Honore-Beaugrand Street between Hochelaga Street and the Honore-Beaugrand Metro Station lined with bungalows is a perfect illustration of the neighborhood.
In spite of the standardization of the bungalow and by way of assorted landscapes, this particular layout shows a scenery rather diversified yet typical and very pleasant looking.
A voluntary exile in youth, a man of culture in maturity, Honore-Beaugrand was passionately devoted to liberty and to new ideas.
At the age of 17 he left Canada and did not come back until 13 years later.
He was twice elected mayor of Montreal (1885 and 1887) and, as a journalist, he constantly expressed ideas and adopted stands that created scandal or conflict.
