Peel Street 1940

Peel Street 1940; watercolour on Hi-Art Board; 50×37 cm

This 1940 view of Peel Street in central Montreal is hard to place. One possible perspective is looking west along the south side of Sherbrooke Street West with the Ritz Carlton Hotel in the left background. Another possible perspective is looking east along Burnside Avenue with apartment towers in the background. Regardless of perspective, this winter cityscape captures the essence of Tinning’s newly adopted urban home.
