The city of Montreal was undergoing volatile urban renewal in the late 1970s, which was passionately protested by residents of long-standing neighbourhoods for the city's lack of foresight and management. The charming nineteenth century duplexes of Christophe-Colombe depicted in this work were to be replaced by utilitarian row houses.
The inscription on this work refers to well-known professional hockey player Mike McMahon, who was born in Brockville.
