Color Photos of Montreal, Canada in 1926: Archives of the Planet Vol. 2-2

In 1926, photographer Frédéric Gadmer, who worked for the project “Archives of the Planet” (French: Les Archives de la Planète), visited the provinces of Canada and captured alluring color photos of the country. 

Archives of the Planet was a project initiated by Albert Kahn, a French banker and philanthropist, and it aimed to create “a kind of photographic inventory of the surface of the earth, as it was occupied and organized by men at the beginning of the 20th century.” We may consider it to be an oldschool Google Maps.
