Two sketches today in Mile End - probably my favourite part of Montreal. On the right, a corner of the fire department which is located on the corner of St Laurent and Laurier. This building also houses a Fire fighter's museum, which I have not yet visited. I'll have to go back and sketch more of this building – it is quite an interesting, castle-like place that deserves a much bigger part of the page.
To the left, Fairmount Bagel, an institution in Montreal eating. To maintain bagel-equality, I promise I will sketch St-Viateur Bagel another day. The two are the main Montreal bagel headquarters.
I just switched to the Moleskin watercolour sketchbook – I need to get used to the horizontal format. Today's drawings are a bit squished together.
