Some people here do not remember tourist rooms and have not used one. There were still a few around 10-15 years ago. I do not know if they still exist. For those that do not know about tourist rooms, they were left overs from the 1940s-50s. These were rooming houses that rent by the day ( or hour ) There were quite run down being that generally they were never changed or updated for 50 years. I only saw the tourist rooms in the last days of their existence, but I was told that there was a time when the street scene was at its peak and there were a few streets that were lined with girls only a few feet apart on St. Catherine from St. Laurent to St. Denis.
Were you there at the peak of the street scene, do you remember tourist rooms?
