I get downtown quite early - 6h30 if I go to the gym and 7h30 if I go straight to work. At that time, there are not too many people on Ste-Catherine Street... just many cars!
At lunch time, it's a different story...
Lots of people - tourists, workers, etc.
Lots of construction... (just noticed that you can see the building where I work on this shot - the tall one in the back)
