From back of postcard:

“St. Catherine Street, Montreal, Quebec, the city’s main shopping artery. During business hours, the street activity centres around the city’s largest department stores and hundreds of specialized shops. In the evening, it remains very much alive thanks to a wide variety of cinemas, bars, and nightclubs.”
